Westminster Forum Policy for Wales: Tackling poverty in Wales: policy reform, implementation and creating routes out of poverty

Tackling poverty in Wales: policy reform, implementation and creating routes out of poverty.

Morning, Thursday, 12th October 2017 in Central Cardiff

This seminar will focus on efforts to tackle poverty in Wales, including the role of early intervention, welfare reform and the creation of routes out of poverty.

It is timed as the Welsh Government phases out its headline anti-poverty programme Communities First - with funding only committed up to 70% of current levels until 2018 - and pursues a new approach to tackling poverty focused around support for those furthest from the labour market and extra support investment in early intervention for children and families.

The seminar will be an opportunity to discuss the implementation of the new approach and its implications as well as further strategies and policies - local, national and UK-wide - designed to address the root causes of poverty such as welfare and minimum wage reform, housing policy and investment in reducing educational attainment gaps.

Sessions will also consider how economic growth policy for deprived regions and communities in Wales can deliver routes out of poverty. Delegates will hear what lessons can be learnt from Lansbury Park, considered to be one of Wales' most deprived communities. Uncertainty over the impact of Brexit on the funding for key Welsh Government skills and employability, programmes and use of Structural Funds for regeneration will also be discussed.
