"We want to ensure that North Lanarkshire will be the place where everyone has equality of opportunity, a place where individuals and communities are poverty free.
In North Lanarkshire we recognise that achieving our goals will not be quick or easy; nor will it be something that as a local authority we will be able to do alone. Our shared ambition places partners and communities at the core of the delivery plan.
The North Lanarkshire Tackling Poverty Strategy will ensure that we unlock the potential of the resources and ‘lived experience’ of all partners and communities to ensure positive outcomes for the people of North Lanarkshire."
Councillor Jim Logue, Leader of North Lanarkshire Council
