CIPF working with End Hunger Cornwall promoted Challenge Poverty Week 2021 in Cornwall.
We asked projects working to address poverty to invite local leaders to come and visit their community group to highlight the excellent work they do and also to give insights into the reasons why so many within our communities are in poverty.
By taking part in Challenge Poverty Week, many organisations
at the front line of Cornwall’s amazing poverty provision
charities have taken the chance to engage with a new
audience, be that Councillors, Church Leaders or MP’s. This
awareness is vital is opening dialogue because we need to be
working with these people to solve the problem of poverty.
We are not their opposition, but we are able to suggest
positive alternatives and be heard.
Thanks to all those projects who took part and for the leaders who took time to visit and comment on the work that is taking place.
