How can you recognise and share the wound of someone struggling against poverty?

Andrew Grinnell has been involved in developing responses to poverty for over 20 years. He is a facilitator for the Leeds Poverty Truth Commission that brings together people who struggle against poverty with leaders from within public, private, third and faith sectors. His doctoral research addressed the political and societal implications of the practice of Christians relocating to low-income neighbourhoods in the UK.

He spoke to Premier's Chick Yuill about his own experience of living in a low-income neighbourhood in Leeds, about developing places of hospitality with local people, and of how it is vital to give a voice to the voiceless rather than to assume that it’s enough for us to speak on their behalf.
