This year, London Challenge Poverty Week is running from 14th - 20th October 2019.
In London, we believe in protecting and taking care of each other, but the current scale of poverty is challenging our shared values of compassion and justice. During London Challenge Poverty Week, Londoners will be joining forces to highlight the reality of poverty in the capital, as well as the great work being done to loosen the grip that poverty has on London families.
Together, we can build an economy and create a city that works for everyone and gives us all a decent life. We've made progress in tackling poverty before, so let's do it again. Let's #SortItOut.
To see what's happening near you, visit the official website or get involved by sharing your organisation's work tackling poverty using the hashtags (#LDNChallengePoverty & #SortItOut).
Trust for London is helping to fund London Challenge Poverty Week and is part of the London Child Poverty Alliance (LCPA), a group of organisations committed to tackling child poverty in London. The LCPA brings together our collective experience and expertise to develop and champion practical solutions to tackle child poverty in London.
