Challenge Poverty Week is an annual event in October. Its purpose is to raise awareness of local issues connected with poverty in all forms – fuel poverty, food poverty, housing poverty, community poverty, financial poverty etc.
Awareness of issues is raised by
- Inviting key policy makers and decision takers in the public and private sector to attend an organisation seeking to address or relieve poverty during the week itself
- Hosting a specific event with a theme which delves into the detail of one specific aspect.
For 2023 that specific event is on Friday 13th October in St Michael’s Church, Newquay and the specific theme will be the Real Living Wage Place campaign for Cornwall.
When booking your place, you have the option to register interest for your organisation to have a free, tabletop stand at the event.
We will update this page with the full agenda and speakers in the coming weeks.
Collaboratively organised by Cornwall Independent Poverty Forum, Truro and Newquay Food Banks, End Hunger Cornwall, Cornwall Council and Cornwall Voluntary Sector Forum.
