London Challenge Poverty Week. Get Involved

London Challenge Poverty Week 2021 takes place from 11 – 17 October. An opportunity for all of us who care about tackling poverty in the capital to come together to increase visibility of the reality of poverty in London, encourage positive debate and show what is being done to tackle the issues. To kick off plans for this year’s week we are holding a ‘Get Involved’ session for anyone who would like to take part in some way. Come and hear about how the week has developed since it began in 2018, how organisations and individuals have taken part in past weeks, what support and training is on offer to help you to get involved and to be inspired! We are especially keen to welcome those with lived experience of poverty to help shape the plans.
