Tackling Poverty Strategy 2023 to 2026


The aim of this strategy is to set out our approach to tackling poverty.

It sets out a three-year action plan that includes short and medium-term actions.

This will address:

  • the cost-of-living crisis
  • current fuel insecurity and inflation
  • long-term sustainable solutions

Our 3 priorities aim to reduce and prevent poverty in Southend. To achieve this we will work together with local partners and residents.

  • Priority 1: Tackling barriers to access support
  • Priority 2: Enhancing people's resilience
  • Priority 3: Advocating for long-term change in Government policies
