#EY2010 lest we forget

In case you didn't know, 2010 is the European Year for Combating Poverty and Social Exclusion. You didn't? We forgive you!

One of the things which has really bugged us here at Zero-credit is how little media coverage there has been for #EY2010, compared to say benefit fraud and service cuts - both of which have a huge impact on the most vulnerable in our society.

As The Telegraph amply demonstrated today, whatever your politics, tackling poverty and social exclusion concerns us all. So Zero-credit is not going to let this year pass without some noise, at least. On that basis, we're on a mission - again!

There's just over seven weeks to go till the AllinOne Project in the East Midlands holds its Poverty Convention @The_Workhouse in Southwell on 18th October and we're committed to amplifying that message loud and clear, because for once, it won't be rhetoric, but personal experiences which are shared.

Here's hoping that you join us to make 2010 a year to remember, because the cost of forgetting may be too hard to bear.
