November 8th 2016

The Joesph Rowntree and Bevan Foundations’ latest report provides a unique framework for action to reduce poverty in Wales.

Based on an extensive review of ‘what works’ and a comprehensive UK strategy, this report makes important recommendations for action in Wales covering:

  • the economy and jobs
  • learning and skills
  • families and communities
  • cutting costs
  • addressing complex needs

In total the report estimates that poverty costs the Welsh public purse around £3.6 billion a year.

The UK strategy along with all the reviews of evidence, findings from modelling different policy options and the estimates of costs of poverty are available on the Joseph Rowntree Foundation website.
