About Challenge Poverty Week

The first Challenge Poverty Week was launched by the Poverty Alliance in 2013.

We wanted to highlight the injustice of poverty in Scotland, and to show that collective action based on justice and compassion can create solutions.

The week is an opportunity for you to raise your voice against poverty and unite with others in calling for a just and equal Scotland.
Each year, hundreds of organisations in Scotland do just that, including elected representative, charities and NGOs, local authorities, faith groups, businesses, school and colleges, trade unions, professional bodies and more.

1. Get inspired!

Together, we can Challenge Poverty. We're running a series of Get Inspired meetings, designed to showcase the different ways your organisation can take part in Challenge Poverty Week.

2. Get planning!

We will give you access to lots of resources to help plan your Challenge Poverty Week events.

There will be social media templates, graphics, and policy briefings for each of the week's special themes.

We provide activity toolkits for different kinds of organisations, as well as lesson plans for teachers.

3. Get noticed!

When you're ready, you can add your event to our Challenge Poverty Week calendar, and share it on your social media using the #ChallengePoverty hashtag.

We'll be sharing lots of your events on our @CPW_Scotland and @PovertyAlliance Twitter accounts.

We also give training with tips on how best to talk about poverty, and how to use the media to get your message out.
