CONSULTATION Child Poverty Strategy for Wales
Welsh Government are seeking your views on the draft Child Poverty Strategy for Wales.
As a Welsh Government we are committed to addressing child poverty as an absolute priority, and our Programme for Government commitments are being shaped and delivered with the need to combat poverty and inequality as a central driver.
This strategy has been co-constructed with families with lived experience of poverty and the organisations that support them. Over 3,300 individuals, including over 1,400 children and young people have given their time to talk to us and help us understand what we need to prioritise as we deliver on tackling poverty and inequality across government.
The major levers for tackling poverty such as welfare benefits and many fiscal powers sit with the UK Government. However, we are determined to work across the Welsh Government to make maximum use of the powers available to us.
For us to make a real difference we must implement Made in Wales solutions, working together with our partners towards a Wales where every child, young person and family can prosper.
