Exploring the poverty premium

Overview
Low income consumers in the UK face several disadvantages in the marketplace, facing higher costs (known as the poverty premium) for things like credit, insurance, transport and energy bills. However, policy and the marketplace has been slow to respond to these disadvantages despite the poverty premium potentially costing some households in excess of £1500 per annum.

Understanding poverty measurement, definitions and data

Overview
Debates about whether poverty exists in the UK and how to define and measure it have raged for decades. A multitude of data is available that helps quantify poverty, but that wealth of data can make finding the most useful and best supporting evidence difficult. By the end of this one-day course participants will have developed an understanding of what key poverty datasets tell us, how best to access data sources and how to use this knowledge to support the work that they do. 

Lunch provided, refreshments throughout the day.
