Challenge Poverty Week

The main aims of the week in Scotland are to; show the reality of poverty in Scotland and challenge stereotypes, highlight and showcase the solutions to poverty and increase public support for action to solve poverty. You can follow ideas, stories and more online on @CPW_Scotland by the Poverty Alliance. There are also activities you can do in schools, with local authorities, social media templates and draft letters to politicians on the dedicated website.

The Scottish Government is also urging everyone this week to participate in their consultation on the Out of School Care framework. They want to understand what children, parents and carers, professionals and experts think about the ways in which Out of School Care can give children opportunities to play and access life-enhancing experiences and support parents to work, train or study. To participate in the consultation please fill this in on their website.
