Dear John

We hope you're looking forward to Challenge Poverty Week, starting next Monday. Maybe you're planning to attend an event online or in your area.

Whether or not you're able to attend an event, here's a simple action you can take to be part of Challenge Poverty Week:

Ask your local MP and councillors to challenge poverty

Challenge Poverty Week England & Wales is an opportunity for us all to say what needs to change after Covid to enable our own communities to thrive. And we need our elected representatives to play their part.

Send an email to your MP and/or councillor(s) using the button below, asking them what they are doing to challenge poverty in your region. You can make it the start of a conversation – hold them to account, and see how you can work together to challenge poverty where you live.

Best wishes

Liam Purcell
