Understanding Poverty in Pembrokeshire

February 28th 2018

The Bevan Foundation is working with Pembrokeshire County Council to increase their understanding of poverty in their area.

Pembrokeshire County Council has invited the Bevan Foundation to help to increase understanding of poverty in the county and to develop effective solutions. According to the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, Pembrokeshire has one of the highest risks of poverty amongst people of working age in the UK, resulting from a mix of low wages and high housing costs.

Speaking to a seminar of members from all parties, senior officers and partner organisations on 28th February 2018, we were able to discuss what poverty means, highlight trends in poverty in Wales and in Pembrokeshire itself, and to discuss our 5-step proven plan to reduce it.

There was a lively discussion about what the local authority could do at a time of pressure on its budget, with members likely to agree an action plan in the coming months.
