International Day to End Poverty

The observance of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty can be traced back to 17 October 1987. The commemoration of this day reflects the willingness of people living in poverty to use their expertise to contribute to the eradication of poverty. People of all backgrounds gather every year on 17 October to renew their commitment and show solidarity.

For October 17th 2023, we want to continue to ‘Light up the UK map’ showcasing all of the amazing activities taking place for #IDEP2023.
