Get involved

Getting involved in Challenge Poverty Week isn’t just about organising events or launching campaigns. You can push for change by taking small, simple steps. The more people who take these actions, the more impact they have.

How you can take action this Challenge Poverty Week:

  • Write to your local MSP or MP to ask them to commit to end poverty in Scotland via We will provide more guidance on this closer to the start of the week.
  • Talk to the media about you or your community’s experiences of poverty. Register for our free media training for guidance!
  • Use social media to share anti-poverty content e.g. petitions, news articles, research, or local initiatives.
  • Get involved with existing community initiatives or charities.

Could your organisation champion this Challenge Poverty Week?

Will your organisation be publishing research or a report on a topic related to poverty? Will you be launching a new campaign or initiative?

The focus on poverty-related issues during Challenge Poverty Week is an ideal platform to launch any work your organisation may be undertaking.
