This Anti-Poverty Week (17-23 October) we are reminding governments that there are 2 key things they can do to unlock poverty for families and children and all affected by pandemic poverty: raise income support above the poverty line and invest in social housing. In 2021 we are again supporting the Raise the Rate for Good and Everybody’s Home campaigns. Here’s some immediate actions you can take: sign the Petition which calls on the PM to support more social housing for women and children fleeing violence. See our 2021 webpage for more.
You can organise an activity within your community, school or workplace during Anti-Poverty Week this year that will help bring an end to poverty. Any activity, large or small, that helps people to express their interest and concern about any aspect of local, national or global poverty is encouraged.
Check out Ideas for Activities for more ways on how to get involved this Anti-Poverty Week.
Make sure to tell us about your activity so we can add your event to our calendar.
