It was great to be at the launch of the Salford Poverty Truth commission today. It will be a big project involving every one possible from across Salford and will examine and report upon the extent of poverty in our city and how it destroys lives.
Today I was moved to tears by the stories of struggle shared by Salford People on the stage. I'm inspired by the strength they had to get up there and tell us their stories which took real guts.
I'm also sooooo proud of Salford Labour's Jayne Gosnall, she knows why, I didn't get to give her a big hug today but she's a true hero!
