The post-holder is responsible for piloting a new ‘Speaking Truth to Power’ programme to develop a network of leaders with lived experience across the UK.

They will work with local grassroots organisations to co-deliver a new capacity building programme that will bring together lived experience leaders ensuring the anti-poverty movement and strategy is led by people who experience poverty.
