A new report into poverty, backed by the Church of Scotland and Faith in Community Scotland, is to demand an end to the poor employment practices trapping many working Scots on very low wages.
While the data in a new Scottish Government report is important, it is people not statistics that really count, says the Rev Martin Johnstone.
Politicians, policy makers, church and civic leaders are being told that poverty can only be properly addressed with the engagement of those it impacts.
A fresh, detailed report is calling on the Scottish Government to include people from the deprived areas in shaping and delivering anti-poverty policy.
Scotland's Poverty Truth Commission, which meets again on 16 April, will stress the need for a major change of culture in developing anti-poverty strategies.
