This report presents a summary of the work done by Community Links, in partnership with Church Action on Poverty and others, in delivering one of the four national themed programmes of the European Year for Combating Poverty and Social Exclusion 2010. An important focus of the programme was to engage with people of working-age who had direct experience of poverty. The programme engaged 1,199 participants, in a participatory not a passive way, involving them and valuing their input. Many participants commented that they had not been involved like this before and welcomed the opportunity to express their views and listen to others.
