Help to tackle effects of poverty
Not-for-profit organisations or groups in Rutherglen and Cambuslang can take advantage of services, skills and knowledge during Challenge Poverty Week, which starts on Sunday.
Organised by The Poverty Alliance, the week aims to bring public attention to the reality of poverty in Scotland, show the impact of poverty on individuals and communities, explain what is being done to address poverty and highlight the challenges in combating it.
Community Links South Lanarkshire are offering some of their services to local groups and projects during that week. There are a number of services on offer, including basic social media advice, IT advice, photography training and event promotional material.
To be eligible groups must be a not- for- profit organisation/group/project based or operating within South Lanarkshire, working within top 10 per cent SIMD areas or working within communities to challenge poverty.
