Monday 4th: #NowIsTheTime

Challenge Poverty Week will begin on 4th October and focuses on the week’s overarching key messages:

  • Too many people in our society are locked in the grip of poverty, restricted from playing a full role in society.  
  • But in Scotland, we all agree that poverty can, and must, be solved. 
     
  • By redesigning our economy to reflect our shared values of justice and compassion, we can unlock poverty’s grip.  
     
  • Action must be taken to boost people’s incomes, reduce the cost of living, and create the just and green Scotland we all want to see.
