          Poverty Alliance: Stick Your Labels Campaign - Challenge Poverty Week 17-23 October 2015

          Motion by Councillors P Barrett and I Miller

          The Poverty Alliance is the national anti-poverty network in Scotland and has offered valuable advice to the Perth and Kinross Council Welfare Rights staff to tackle the causes and consequences of poverty in Perth and Kinross.

          As part of the national campaign to combat stigma, the Poverty Alliance has, in the run up to Challenge Poverty week later this month, invited Councils to sign up to the national "Stick Your Labels" campaign.  The objective of the campaign is to tackle negative attitudes and challenge stereotypes about people experiencing poverty.  The Campaign has been supported by the Scottish Government, CoSLA and Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations.

         Perth & Kinross Council pledges to:

        1    Set out its contribution and commitment to tackling poverty in our area.
        2    Avoid language which can cause harm to people experiencing poverty or stigmatise those living in poverty.
        3    Develop and take actions that will address negative attitudes towards people experiencing poverty.

       Council agrees to request that the Chief Executive brings forward a detailed report on addressing poverty and the above pledges within Perth and Kinross.
