The Archbishop of York is launching an initiative to help tackle poverty in Middlesbrough.
The town is ranked as one of the poorest places to live in the UK, with up to 59% of children in the area reportedly living in poverty. 'Together Middlesbrough', which is a joint scheme between the Church Urban Fund and the Diocese of York, is aimed to reducing the level of deprivation.
The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, will launch the project at St Barnabas Church in Linthorpe at 2pm.
