The Poverty Truth Network has a small team of part-time workers who are responsible for the day to day running of the network and fulfilling its purpose. They are:

Martin Johnstone
Martin Johnstone

Martin has been part of the Poverty Truth story from the very start, helping to establish the first Poverty Truth Commission in Scotland in 2009. It’s a lifelong passion to social justice that gets him out of bed every morning – he doesn’t need an alarm clock.

Julia Coulton
Julia Coulton

Julia has worked in both public and private sector roles, and for charities for many years. She loves working for the Poverty Truth Network because they put the people that matter at the heart of things. In her spare time she is passionate about her football team Manchester City, learning to speak Italian, and watching films.

Andrew Grinnell

After hearing about the Poverty Truth Commission in Scotland, Andrew knew that it was something that the city of Leeds where he lived would benefit from. He didn’t realise then that this would also mean he would be involved in establishing the Poverty Truth Network. He is a keen runner, loves cricket and is a self-confessed coffee snob.
