A major review of the impact and extent of poverty in Guernsey is being carried out by the government's Scrutiny Management Committee.

The committee is asking the public for their views on issues including the minimum wage, the cost of housing and healthcare, and the impact of States charges on low income households.

The focus of the review is to evaluate whether the policy and strategies are effective.

If not, then why not and what needs to done in the future.

– Deputy Peter Roffey, Vice-President of the Scrutiny Management Committee

The evidence gathered by the committee will be used to form a report, including recommendations for further action by the States to tackle the issue of poverty.
