Lived Experience Advisory Group


educate our community. ADVOCATE FOR CHANGE. Take action.

The Lived Experience Advisory Group (LEAG) is focused on bringing a lived experience voice to the work being done to reduce the challenges of poverty in our community. The group’s work includes bringing awareness to the challenges of poverty; advocating for poverty reduction efforts; and engaging in projects to reduce the daily impacts of poverty on our community. Together, the group strives to have a strong voice, to build bridges, increase knowledge, form new relationships, and inform on policy to eliminate poverty in Chatham-Kent.

Making a difference

The group has worked closely with Chatham-Kent Employment and Social Services, Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit, and the Canada Learning Bond Committee to advise on specific changes to programs and systems that would make access and system navigation easier and more effective
