Halton Poverty Roundtable
Halton Poverty Roundtable (HPRT) is a strategic initiative of the United Way Halton & Hamilton. The HPRT has deep local knowledge of our community and the impact that poverty has on our neighbours, family, friends and colleagues.
We leverage our connections with individuals living the experience of poverty in Halton and amply their voices and experiences when educating the broader community and advocating for system level changes. The HPRT is a knowledge leader on poverty in our community and publishes a diverse range of knowledge products for the community.
Leveraging the United Way Halton & Hamilton’s position at the centre of our community; the HPRT acts as a community convener to deliver impact through innovation, collaborative action, and dedicated effort to support our partners, and our communities.
The HPRT convenes community tables under three focus areas: Halton Poverty Roundtable, Halton Community Benefits Network and Social Prescription Roundtable. The members of these tables are individuals with lived or living experience of poverty as well as strong representation from community, business and government sectors who are experts in their respective fields. We work together to find new solutions to address the issues of poverty in our community.
