We have been hearing a lot about poverty and how it has been affecting people in Society. There was a study that took placed called “The study by the Campaign to End Child Poverty” it showed that Dundee had the second highest rate in Scotland at 26% of children living in poverty.
Dundee City Council are trying to tackle this and want to hear the reality of poverty in Dundee, so that they can recommend the best possible action to challenge this.
Dundee City Council has created a short questionnaire asking the people of Dundee to share their story and how it has impacting on them. Here is your chance for your story to be heard.

It’s been a tough year for our Housing Support Service this past year. Our contract was reduced by 5% in line with the Council’s cost saving requirements and in 2014 – 2015 the contract was again reduced by 3%. This resulted in a reduction in staffing but Positive Steps has continued to work hard to limit the impact on service delivery.
