Thrive Teesside is an organisation based in Stockton in the North East of England which ultimately aims to lower the gap between the rich and the poor. They provide direct support for people living in poverty, and hope to empower marginalised and socially and financially excluded communities with the knowledge and tools to be able to take action for themselves. Thrive believe that the most effective way to do this is to fully engage with and listen to the experiences and ideas of those living in poverty. In October 2017 Thrive will launch the Stockton Poverty Truth Commission which will provide a platform for members of low income communities to directly challenge and work with Stockton’s leaders and policymakers to tackle poverty.
