How Fair is Wales?

March 31st 2011

The report puts the evidence in the context of marked changes in Wales’s economy and society, and sets out seven challenges to the Welsh Government. It was launched at two conferences, one in south Wales and one in north Wales, at which Victoria Winckler, Bevan Foundation Director (pictured below) spoke.
