Disrupting Poverty in Leeds
We have been running a project called ‘Disrupting Poverty in Leeds’ for the last few months. We have already held two large workshops where we aim to bring together the public, private and third sector to see how we can work together to disrupt poverty in the city.
I would be delighted if you could help us by doing one or more of:
- Joining us on April 27th at Leeds University to plan how to Turn the Curve on Poverty in Leeds – http://dispov.eventbrite.co.uk/
- Getting in touch to offer us any help or support (stationery, expertise, funding, energy…)
- Popping onto facebook page and giving us a like – http://www.facebook.com/Dispovleeds
- Spreading the word wherever you can…email, social media, pigeon post
Many thanks in anticipation of your help….

Here is the slide show that friends at Logistik helped to put together based to a large degree on the work of Mark Friedman on Results Based Accountability…

Disrupting Poverty in Leeds – The Results Factory
Leeds aspires to be The Best City in the UK.
But to the 23% of Leeds’ children who live in poverty, rising to almost 50% in some communities, this must seem a very distant goal.
What can we do about it?
The Results Factory is about generating ideas and making them happen. In under 3 hours, we will come together, develop ideas and leave with action plans. Whether you need people to help get a project up and running, or whether you have time you want to use, we’ll find practical ways to start disrupting poverty in our city.
Our aim is to leave with clear actions that will make a difference. You don’t need to be a professional in the field or have particular expertise. All we need from you is an open mind and a desire to change things.
So, join us on Friday 27th April to help us to Disrupt Poverty in Leeds.
