This webinar accompanies the launch of a report on a pioneering exercise in which people with lived experience of financial hardship, the national poverty Turn2Us and academics from the Bennett Institute for Public Policy came together to coproduce a theory of thriving.

We’ll describe how we organised coproduction, what we learned about thriving under financial hardship, and how organisations can make people’s lived experience central to their work.

This event will be of particular interest to people working in the charity and public policy sectors with a particular interest in wellbeing and poverty.
