Looking for ways to help others understand what it is like to live in poverty? This short tutorial explains how the ‘Welcome to Our World’ platform can help and how you and others can use it.
‘Welcome to Our World’ is an online tool spoken by families about their experiences of disadvantage. Hear what families go through, see what the higher level research findings say about these issue and most importantly, find out what can be done to create positive change.
This platform can be used in trainings, workshops, to inform policy or deliver better services and supports… it can also be shared with friends and family to help create more awareness and understanding in our community.
By increasing awareness we hope it will deepen peoples understanding and in turn, promote empathy and action.
