As part of our launch event of our final report, A Just Capital: Actions to End Poverty in Edinburgh, we spoke to four citizens about their experiences of living in poverty in the city.

Thanks to Sarah, Linda, Iscah and Paul for their time, knowledge and input. All four are members of a new network provisionally named End Poverty Edinburgh, who will carry on the work we have started.

This is a group of Edinburgh citizens we have met during our inquiry, who have expressed their desire and commitment to be a part of the change their city needs to make. Some members have experience of living in poverty, others see the impact of poverty directly through their work and others are allies who care and want to see justice for their fellow citizens.
