Living in poverty is to be discussed at a public meeting in Sheffield later this month.

The event, organised by the Sheffield’s branch of Church Action on Poverty, the People’s Assembly for Sheffield and Sheffield Equality Group, is to be held on Saturday, November 29 from 10am to 12.30pm in the Victoria Hall Methodist Church, Norfolk Street.
