Child Poverty Strategy launched

The Welsh Government’s new Child Poverty Strategy aims to tackle the harmful effects of living in poverty and improve opportunities for children living in poverty.

Speaking as she launched the new strategy, Ms Hutt said the Welsh Government would use all its existing powers and levers as it works with other organisations to make child poverty a priority in decision making at all levels of government in Wales over the coming decade.

More than 3,000 children, young people, families and organisations have helped to create the Child Poverty Strategy, which is underpinned by a commitment to children’s rights in addressing the scourge of child poverty.
