This week is Challenge Poverty Week, an opportunity for you to raise your voice against poverty and unite with others in calling for a more just and equal Scotland.
The Challenge Poverty campaign believes that too many people in Scotland are living with the constant pressure of poverty, and as we plan our economic recovery, we must redesign our economy to reflect the values of justice and compassion we all share. By boosting people’s incomes and reducing the cost of living we can make sure we all have what we need.
Challenge Poverty Week aims to:
- raise a unified voice against poverty and show that we all want to live in a more just and equal Scotland
- build awareness and support for solutions to poverty.
- change the conversation around poverty and help end the stigma of living on a low income.
