The good news is that the Liverpool Fairness Commission (new name for the Poverty Commission) has started work.
We had a kick off meeting a few weeks ago and there's now a schedule which starts next month and looks like giving several good sessions to look at issues of fairness in Liverpool and the wider Liverpool area
We already have some of the Commissioners sorted - reps from business, the unions etc - but I know that we are also looking to recruit a few more (letters have already gone out)
There doesn't seem to be a weblink I can post to details about the commission yet, but as soon as I find one, or one is set up, I'll post the link.
Meanwhile, as a member myself, I'll report back on what goes on.
