Last week Ore Valley Housing Association signed up to The Poverty Alliance's Stick Your Labels campaign.

The Stick Your Labels campaign was initially launched in 2010/11 to challenge the stigma of poverty.

It emerged from a working group set up by the Poverty Alliance, which involved people with direct experience of poverty, who developed a series of statements which the leaders of the five main political parties signed up to.

The aim of the campaign since then has been to highlight the negative impact of attitudes around poverty. 

On November 2nd 2017, after an informative and thought provoking workshop with Rachel Thomson from The Poverty Alliance, Ore Valley Housing Association signed up to the Stick Your Labels pledges to challenge the stigma of poverty.
