Anti-Poverty Week

Poverty and severe hardship affect more than a million Australians. Around the world more than a billion people are desperately poor.

In 2014 Anti Poverty Week will be held from the 12th to the 18th of October.

Anti-Poverty Week is a week where all Australians are encouraged to organise or take part in an activity aiming to highlight or overcome issues of poverty and hardship here in Australia or overseas. It was established in Australia as an expansion of the UN's annual International Anti-Poverty Day on October 17.

Last year, at least 600 organisations around Australia participated in more than 400 activities during the Week. Why not organise your own event this year?
