Challenge Poverty Week

We are excited to announce that this year, Scottish Mentoring Network are supporting Challenge Poverty Week!

We know that poverty affects many of our members mentees and mentors, and so we wanted to use this opportunity to highlight the great work the projects do to help mitigate it.

During this week, The Poverty Alliance have distributed guidance, along with the themes that each day will have:

  • General poverty
  • Public services
  • Social security
  • Employment
  • Gender
  • Race
  • Disability
