The Derbyshire Partnership Forum agreed to extend the development of our anti-poverty strategy across the broader partnership to provide an overarching framework for joint working.
Working together to tackle poverty in Derbyshire, the Anti-Poverty Strategy 2014-2017 was approved by the Derbyshire Partnership Forum in September 2014.
The strategy has been developed using research and information about growing levels of poverty in the county and incorporates the results of consultation with key stakeholders and local people.
It is structured around four key challenges and identifies a number of principles which will be extremely important in guiding the work of partners against a backdrop of reducing public sector resources.
The strategy includes six cross-cutting partnership priorities which are supported by a range of high level actions designed to concentrate both effort and resource over the next three years.
