Challenge Poverty Week

3rd – 9th October 2022

Visit our dedicated Challenge Poverty Week website or follow @CPW_Scotland for the latest.

Challenge Poverty Week is an opportunity for you to raise your voice against poverty and show what is being done to tackle poverty across Scotland.

Organisations large and small supported Challenge Poverty Week last year, and we hope even more get behind it this year.

The main aims of the week are to:

  • Highlight the reality of poverty and challenge the stereotypes
  • Showcase the solutions to poverty
  • Increase public support for action to solve poverty
