The support available for low income families has a significant impact on their likelihood of living in poverty.

Time: 10 – 12

Venue: Citizens Advice Cymru, Cardiff, CF24 0ED

Cost: Free (By invitation only – if you are interested in attending please contact us)

What is it about

One of the key factors that has an impact on the number of people living in poverty is the support that is made available to those on low income through the social security system. Whilst the primary source of support for people living on low incomes in Wales comes from the UK Government, a form of regional variation has been present in the UK with regards to how this support is provided since the Poor Laws. Devolution has seen the scope for such regional variation increase significantly. This could have important implications for how those living in poverty in Wales are supported by the social security system.

The Bevan Foundation is embarking on a new project that seeks to gain a better understanding of the support that is available for people living on low income in Wales, and to identify what are the issues facing individuals when they seek to gain access to this support. This roundtable discussion marks the starting point for the project and will provide interested stakeholders with an opportunity to share their experiences of the existing support schemes available for low income families in Wales.

Who should attend?

The event is by invitation only, providing individuals with expertise within the area with an opportunity to share their experiences and views. If you have an interest in this policy area and feel that you could make an impact on the debate then contact us by clicking on the link above.
