About #ChallengePoverty Week

The first Challenge Poverty Week was launched by the Poverty Allliance in 2013.

We wanted to highlight the injustice of poverty in Scotland, and to show that collective action based on justice and compassion can create solutions.   

The week is an opportunity for you to raise your voice against poverty and unite with others in calling for a just and equal Scotland. 

Each year, hundreds of organisations in Scotland do just that, including elected representative, charities and NGOs, local authorities, faith groups, businesses, school and colleges, trade unions, professional bodies and more. 

Will you join us?

Helping #ChallengePoverty is easy 

1. Get inspired

Get an idea of what it's all about. You can come along to one of our Get Inspired meetings. You can email our Campaigns Officer Suzi Murning. And you can look at what others have done in the past for inspiration.

2. Get planning

Once you've got an idea of what kind of event you want to hold. start planning! We've got lots of resources, like templates for social media posts, or posters, that you can use. And we're always here to give a bit of help or advice.

3. Get noticed

You can use our templates to share news of your event on social media, or you can write a news release, after taking part in one of our media training sessions. And - most importantly - don't forget to add your event to our calendar!
