All Challenge Poverty Week resources

There are lots of ways you can get involved in Challenge Poverty Week. Each year hundreds of organisations across Scotland run their own unique activities designed to help challenge poverty.

For ideas, inspiration, and resources to help you plan how you’ll get involved, have a look at our:

Activity toolkits: for general use, local authorities, faith groups, businesses, and health organisations. See all our toolkits here.

Media and press resources: will help you talk about poverty in an effective way and help you use your voice to influence the local or national press. Find resources here.

Lesson plans: written by education professionals, our primary and secondary school and college lesson plans can be used during the week to help pupils and students engage with issues around poverty.  View lesson plans here.

Suggested social media content: we have lots of CPW graphics you can download here for use on social media, but you’re also encouraged to make your own! Find our step by step guide to making your own CPW themed graphics using our Canva account here. We have template social media posts for use during the week here. Find all social media content here.

Letters to politicians: whether you’re an individual, small community group, or a large NGO, we encourage you to write to politicians during CPW urging them to take action on poverty. Find template letters here.

Themes and asks: each day of CPW will have a different theme, and some associated policy solutions we hope you’ll help us promote. Find more details here.
