projects campaigns 2015With programmes focused on supporting families and influencing policy, ATD Fourth World works in partnership with people affected by long-term poverty to develop their potential and enable them to participate fully in the life of their communities and society at large.

Our Policy, Participation and Training Programme empowers people with experience of poverty to express their views and offer solutions to the problems affecting their lives while offering policy makers an invaluable insight into fighting poverty from the bottom up.

At the same time, our Family Support Programme aims to act as a bridge between the most vulnerable and excluded families and professionals, giving both parties the time, space and resources to build positive and long-lasting relationships. In doing so, we seek to create the conditions that will allow parents, children and professionals to work together and learn from one another.
