GET INVOLVED Challenge Poverty Week aims

Challenge Poverty Week England & Wales is an opportunity for us all to say what needs to change after Covid to enable our own communities to thrive.

It’s a chance for voices that are too often ignored to be heard loud and clear. It’s a chance to show that it is possible to build a better, more compassionate society in which everyone can live life to the full. And it’s a chance to start that journey, together, now.

To raise voices in unison against poverty and shine a light on visions for a more just, compassionate and opportunity-filled country.

1

2

End the Stigma
