Anti-Poverty Week, 16-22 Oct 2016: Help Reduce Poverty!

17 June 2016

As part of the ACT Anti-Poverty Week Facilitating Group, ACTCOSS encourages individuals and organisations to organise or take part in an Anti-Poverty Week activity that aims to highlight or overcome issues of poverty and hardship here in the ACT, Australia or overseas.

All types of organisations are encouraged to be involved including government departments, local councils, business organisations, universities, sporting and cultural groups, welfare and health organisations, religious groups, community organisations, schools and youth groups.

Organisations are encouraged to organise an activity and to add it to the Anti-Poverty Week Calendar of Activities by submitting details here. Resources to help organise an activity and raise awareness about Anti-Poverty Week are also available through the Anti-Poverty Week website.

For information about Anti-Poverty Week activities occurring in the ACT contact your local Co-Chairs at [email protected] and keep informed and get involved via Facebook and Twitter.
