Event details

A two day online conference, 10am - 4.15pm each day from the Life on the Breadline project team as the culmination of three years of research into Christian responses to UK poverty in the context of austerity.

Full details including the provisional conference programme are available on the Life on the Breadline website.

The conference will combine sessions with presentations and Q&A, and interactive workshops. The anticipated audience for the conference is theology and social science academics, church leaders, and practitioners in church and poverty response settings. The majority of sessions are aimed at all three audiences, and the target audience is noted alongside each session in the provisional conference programme.

Sessions at the conference will include presentations from the Life on the Breadline project team – Dr Chris Shannahan, Professor Robert Beckford, Professor Peter Scott and Dr Stephanie Denning - on the research findings, interactive workshops on researching poverty, asset-based community development, and Black Church responses to austerity, and guest speakers Dr Naomi Maynard (Together Liverpool) and Professor Anthony Reddie (University of Oxford and University of South Africa). At the conference we will also be launching the Anti-Poverty Charter which is being developed in consultation with research participants in the Life on the Breadline research.
