The Bruce Grey Poverty Task Force facilitates community partnerships to advocate for poverty reduction and elimination.
We work together with key community stakeholders and networks to eliminate poverty and enhance our common understanding of poverty-related issues through solution-based research, knowledge development and information sharing.
The Bruce Grey Poverty Task Force is made up of 6 sector-based Action Groups: Income Security, Food Security, Housing, Transportation , Bridges (Out of Poverty) Action Group and Moving Forward on Health Equity. These sub-groups of the Poverty Task Force dig deeper into the root causes of poverty in our communities and take action.
The Community Voices group of the Poverty Task Force makes up a 7th Action Group that examines the causes of poverty from the perspective of people with lived experience. Members of the Community Voices have graduated from the Getting Ahead program and are advocates for change within their own communities.
