‘Pounds against Poverty’ surpasses target

Poverty Pounds against Poverty campaign total
CampaignsNewsJanuary 4th, 2018

Our Pounds against Poverty crowdfunding appeal has raised £2,728.

Thanks to the generosity of many individuals and organisations, the total exceeds our initial target of £2,000 by 36%.

The funding will be used alongside funds from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation in our ambitious goal to reduce poverty in Wales to 10% by 2030. As it stands, poverty is expected to increase over the next three years to a shocking 27%. We’ll be developing practical solutions to new and long-standing challenges that people face in Wales, and persuading government, businesses, communities and people to take action.

At the end of January, we’ll be pressing ahead with our five-step plan, based on tried and tested ways to help people move away from a life of poverty, for good. These are:

  • Building an economy for all
  • Boosting education and skills
  • Creating stronger families and communities
  • Cutting the costs of housing and essentials
  • Addressing complex needs

To keep up to date with our progress, please sign up to our free monthly newsletter.

Our crowdfunding appeal has now closed, but it’s not too late to support us. From as little as £3.25 a month, you can become a Bevan Foundation Supporter – you’ll also receive Wales’ best policy and politics magazine, available exclusively to our regular Supporters.
