The Bevan Foundation appeared before the Senedd Finance Committee to give oral evidence

The Bevan Foundation has given evidence to the Senedd’s Finance Committee inquiry into the Welsh Government’s Draft Budget for 2021/22.

Giving evidence alongside the Gemma Schwendel of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, Steffan Evans, Policy and Research Officer at the Bevan Foundation, set out some of the Foundation’s thoughts on the draft budget, focusing in particular on the measures put in place to solve poverty.

Whilst welcoming the increased investment made by the Welsh Government into solving poverty and assisting families trapped in poverty, Steffan outlined some areas where the Bevan Foundation would like to see the Welsh Government go further. In particular he highlighted the need to invest in solutions to poverty at scale if they are to make a significant difference and noted the need for the Welsh Government to increase its investment into long term solutions as attention turns to the economic recovery post pandemic.
