Challenge Poverty Week

Voices within Poverty Event – Challenge Poverty Week – October 2022 Cornwall

CIPF working with End Hunger Cornwall promoted Challenge Poverty Week 2022 in Cornwall.

Challenge Poverty Week 2022 has enabled us to highlight our issues on the national stage. It has provided a platform for people
in power and decision makers to talk with people living the reality of modern day poverty. Our opening conference ’Voices
within Poverty’ led to Challenge Poverty Week, which all fed into our nationally significant conference ‘You still can’t eat the view’.

This report is a fantastic document which, although it outlines our many problems, also does what Cornwall does best in
offering a great snapshot of our community; a realisation of all of the amazing people doing great things every day to help and,
most importantly, some challenges and solution based ideas from which to continue this debate in a pragmatic, positive and
persistent way.

Challenge Poverty Week – October 2021 Cornwall

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.
