Poverty; It’s not a choice!
The impact of poverty is intergenerational: it affects older and younger people. The Greater Belfast Seniors Forum and Belfast City Council Youth Forum with support from our Age-friendly Belfast team joined together to start an awareness raising campaign to bust the myths, challenge the stereotypes, influence decision makers and get people talking about poverty.
We want to send a clear message out that poverty is not a lifestyle choice and that people experiencing poverty contribute positively to our communities and our city every single day.
We hope you like our video and we would encourage you to join the campaign, you can use Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to share your messages about poverty in Belfast. Help us to challenge the stereotypes, influence decision makers and get people talking.
