Making policy care: exploring care work and poverty

Section: Policy into Practice Location: Renfrewshire Date of event: 21/01/2020 at 10:30 - 13:30

Discussing the key issues around care, work, and poverty.

The UWS-Oxfam Partnership would like to invite you to their latest Policy Forum: Making Policy Care: Exploring the relationship between care work and poverty, which will be held on 21st January 2020 at the University of the West of Scotland campus in Paisley.

From those working in the paid childcare and health and social care sectors, to parents and unpaid carers of people with additional needs – everyone has a different experience of how vital paid and unpaid care work is to our households and communities. But care work can be undervalued by society and at times trap people in poverty.

This event seeks to explore the ‘value of care’ with the hope that we can come up with ideas for collaborative research projects that will produce the kinds of evidence that drives real change.

For more information and to register for this free event, please visit the Eventbrite page (this link will take you away from our website).

The Partnership will be able to reimburse travel costs and will offer a free crèche for the duration of the event. A light lunch will be provided.
