Anti Poverty Week
October 11 - October 17
Anti-Poverty Week supports the Australian community to have an increased understanding of poverty and to take action collectively to end it. We are a diverse network of individuals and organisations who share this purpose and we focus our activity each year in the week around the United Nations Day for the Eradication of Poverty on 17 October.
Everyone is encouraged to help reduce poverty and hardship by organising an activity during the Week or taking part in an activity organised by others. In 2019, Anti-Poverty Week will be held from the 13th to the 19th of October.
