Challenge Poverty Week has been coordinated by the Poverty Alliance for the last seven years, and it is an opportunity to highlight what is being done to address poverty and to commit to more action in the future. Last year nearly 200 events were organised by organisations, individuals and elected representatives as part of Challenge Poverty Week
Scotland’s Women Stand is a movement to support and empower the women of Scotland to stand for political office. A major focus of this movement is a massive event we’re hosting at the Scottish Parliament on 7th September, where we’re bringing 400 women together for an inspirational day of keynote speeches, workshops, and networking.
Alongside the Scottish Parliament event and also on Saturday, 7th September, we’re running four “regional hubs” across the country and one of these four regional hubs will be taking place at Comhairle nan Eilean Siar in Stornoway, on 7th September, from 9:30AM – 3PM. The event is completely free to attend.
If you are 25 or under, volunteer with us – you never know where it could take you! We have opportunities throughout the Outer Hebrides – tell us what you are interested in and we will help you find a volunteering opportunity.
