Updates from CWaC

Challenge Poverty Week is now fast approaching, taking place from 17 to 23 October.

The theme for 2022 is Living not just existing: dignity for all and, throughout the week, everyone can consider what needs to change for residents in their community to be able to thrive as we emerge from the pandemic.

There are individual themes for days throughout the week.

  • Monday 17 October – Raise voices
  • Tuesday 18 October – Our communities
  • Wednesday 19 October – Cost of living
  • Thursday 20 October – End stigma
  • Friday 21 October – Build awareness

If you decide to post on social media, you can use the hashtags #DignityForAll and #ChallengePoverty and share messages and photos from others.
