Challenge Poverty Week is an opportunity for you to raise you 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 that about exist about it;
Demonstrate what is being done across Scotland to address poverty
Increase public support for more action to solve poverty
We are encouraging as many groups and individuals to get involved in Challenge Poverty Week by organising activities or taking part in activities organised by others. http://www.povertyalliance.org/challenge_poverty
