Challenge Poverty Week 2020
Challenge Poverty Week information
During Challenge Poverty Week we aim to help raise awareness of some of the supports to mitigate poverty, and to help end the stigma of living on a low income. This is especially important just now because of the wider impact of the Coronavirus pandemic – everyone has been affected, but we know both the virus and the measures to stop it spreading have had a greater effect on certain groups of people. The impact is more severe on those who are living in poverty or close to it.
The leaflet provides advice on how people can check their entitlements to support and maximise their income.
