Organising an event?

Don’t forget to register your event so we can help promote it.

And here are three more ways to be part of the Week:

1. If you have an hour

Invite your MP and local councillors to visit your organisation or project during Challenge Poverty Week. 

Don’t forget to take a picture and post it on social media! Please tag us: @CPW_E_W on Twitter and @challengepovertyweek on Facebook and Instagram and use the hashtag #ChallengePoverty

2. If you have 30 minutes

Write your MP and local councillors about your organisation, the work you do to tackle poverty and what issues you want addressed.

You can base your letter on our template Letter to MPs.

3. If you have 10 minutes

Record a 30-second message or take a selfie during the week (11-17 October) talking about why you are supporting Challenge Poverty Week.

Tag us: @CPW_E_W on Twitter and @challengepovertyweek on Facebook and Instagram and use the hashtag #ChallengePoverty so we can repost your message!
