Experts by experience – Workstream 3 update

Experts by experience

May 2018

In response to the high demand for guidance on how to most effectively engage and support those experiencing food poverty, the FRC held discussions with Sustain and Church Action on Poverty to identify topics that might support their joint “Food Power” programme.  The empowerment of those experiencing food poverty from their participation in local food poverty alliance work as “experts by experience” was chosen as a suitable topic.  At present two Food Policy Masters students at City, University of London are exploring the evidence on the use of experts by experience in food poverty projects as their dissertation topic. Once completed, next steps will be announced.
