His insight will help us to address the first key question from our Guiding paper ‘shifting power’. From Poverty to Power argues that a radical redistribution of power, opportunities, and assets, rather than traditional models of charitable or government aid is required to break the cycle of poverty and inequality.

Strategic review 2014
Manager’s resource for this month
Mental health support at work
Three updates on using our internal communication channels
Last month we held a course with a specialist from Mind. The course was primarily aimed at managers and explained how broad and complex the subject of mental health in the workplace is. Practical questions were put forward and resources like the parachute approach (a guide on how to start a conversation) to agreeing how to help staff, has been put into practice already by a manager who did not attend but has said it was very useful. This though would only be applicable when a staff member has been open with their manager about the issue. One of the participants said: Just wanted to say a great big “Thankyou” for the feature article on Mental Health Awareness Week. It’s so important and I = can’t emphasise enough how much it means to me and I’m sure LOTS more colleagues here, that the issue is taken so seriously here.
