A letter came through today from South Lanarkshire Council intimating a "Tackling Child Poverty Local Conference" taking place in October in Cambuslang and in Blantyre. Our local event will be held on Wednesday 12 October in the Blantyre Miner's Resource Centre from 9 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.

The letter says the purpose of the event is "to bring a range of local service providers, practitioners, community activists and volunteers together and through presentations and discussions, acknowledge progress and identify further actions that can be taken to address poverty in South Lanarkshire's most deprived urban areas."

The conference will focus on child poverty and early intervention strategies to prevent problems escalating. The conference looks worth attending and supporting to see how we can participate as a church in supporting this work.

I will try to attend, if anyone else would like to do so, please let me know. A confirmation of attendance is requested from the organisers.
