Tackling Poverty

A funders' roundtable


  • Dinah Cox OBE, Consultant ACF
  • Chris Goulden, JRF

Are you interested in helping to shape a new network of ACF members focusing upon those living in poverty in the UK?

Over the last year ACF has been working with members to consider what role foundations can play in tackling poverty.

At this meeting we will share an up-to-date:

  • mapping of the current foundation funding landscape in response to poverty in the UK
  • areas foundations have identified they could collectively have an impact

Our research showed that there is a great diversity within the foundation sector in terms of how to tackle poverty in the UK but 77% of members who responded to a survey thought there was scope for an issue-based network on tackling poverty and room to develop more collaborative funding, and information sharing on specific issues such as child poverty and the democratic participation.

This roundtable meeting would be an opportunity to explore the work to date; to discuss the viability of establishing a network.
