We want this year’s Challenge Poverty Week to make the biggest impact yet, with a wide range of organisations and groups organising their own activities.

Activities can include almost anything that will help raise awareness about poverty and show what can be done about it.  

The kinds of activities that could take place include:
•    lectures, debates, workshops and conferences.
•    letters to newspapers, petitions, surveys and publications.
•    open days, walks, rallies, film nights and concerts.
•    advice and training sessions, exhibitions and information stalls.
•    fund-raisers and religious services, competitions, award presentations and school projects

More ideas about the kinds of activities that could be organised are contained in this document.

Whatever you organise, remember to tell us about it using our Calendar of Activities or by emailing  If you are tweeting about your activity, don’t forget to use #CPW18 and mention @CPW_Scotland.

You can get advice on using the media here.

"Poverty is a scar on our society. It is unnecessary and unacceptable. There is nothing inevitable about poverty and by working together we can really make a change. Challenge Poverty Week is a chance for all of us to show what is possible."
