Challenge Poverty Week

09 October 2020

Challenge Poverty Week is an opportunity to highlight the incredible work being done by community groups around the country, and to show what can and must be done differently.

It’s an opportunity for voices that are often ignored to be heard loud and clear. It’s a chance to focus attention on the need to tackle poverty – and to show the immense difference we could make to our society if we do.

Build Awareness
