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.
