Poverty is a community challenge that impacts people from many different backgrounds and across the life span.  Poverty involves a number of challenges, such as:

access to healthy food; earning enough money; adequate housing; higher education opportunities; job opportunities; reliable transportation; andhealth services.

Responding to poverty requires a whole-of-community, collaborative approach.  The aim of the Community Conversationsis to raise awareness of the poverty issues Islanders face, and to work withIslanders on a larger scale to identify potential priorities and solutions for addressing poverty.
