Reframing Poverty Workshop: sharing learning


At the VONNE conference in 2016 we heard from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) on their work exploring key messages, views and beliefs held by the general public on poverty in the UK. Since then JRF has been working with Frameworks Institute on a research project on how we can tell a new story about poverty in the UK.

On 25th March VONNE and the Millfield House Foundation hosted a workshop by the Framework Institute on Reframing Poverty. At this workshop we heard from FrameWorks on their joint learning to understand how we can re-frame conversations and messages about poverty in the UK.

This is a distillation of two reports from the FrameWorks Institute, in partnership with the JRF:

Talking About Poverty: How Experts and the Public Understand Poverty in the United Kingdom

How to Talk About Poverty in the United Kingdom

JRF have also produced a summary and toolkit: 

How to build lasting support to solve UK poverty
