Partnership to reduce poverty

November 7th 2017

The Bevan Foundation and Joseph Rowntree Foundation are proud to announce a new, four year partnership to reduce poverty in Wales.

With no sign of levels of poverty reducing and every likelihood that they will rise, the new partnership between the two organisations is a timely attempt to try to reverse the trend. The JRF’s investment reflects its long-standing commitment to working across the four nations of the UK. It also recognises the significant achievements made by the Bevan Foundation in informing public policy, although there is still much more to do.

Speaking at the launch at a drinks reception at Cardiff City Hall on 6th November, JRF Chief Executive Campbell Robb said:

“Our aim is that by 2030 there are fewer people in poverty for a shorter time, and that nobody is ever destitute.  We’re pleased to be working with the Bevan Foundation in Wales, and with the many partners that share this aim, to make this happen.”

Bevan Foundation Director Victoria Winckler said:

“We are delighted that JRF is helping us to take forward the work that so urgently needs to be done in Wales. We know what works but we need to develop practical policies and continue to persuade government, businesses and the third sector that they need to take action.”

The support from JRF will go towards the cost of a dedicated policy post and a contribution towards the Bevan Foundation’s core costs.
