The Digital Sentinel will be holding a chat with local people to tie in with Challenge Poverty Week on Wednesday 21st October, Wester Hailes library from 10.30am. We want to speak to you and hear your thoughts and experiences.
Challenge Poverty Week is 17-23 October 2015. More than 900,000 people in Scotland live in low income households.
Challenge Poverty Week is an opportunity for you to raise you voice against poverty.
The main aims of the week are to:
- Highlight the reality of poverty and challenge the stereotypes that exist about it;
- Demonstrate what is being done across Scotland to address poverty
- Increase public support for more action to combat poverty
In the meantime, you can still contribute to the discussion by emailing in to digitalsentinel
