The Welsh government will launch their new plan to tackle poverty today. It will set out how the government will try to reduce the number of households where no one is in work.
The plan will also look at how the educational achievement of children from low income families can be raised. In a recent report the education watchdog, ESTYN, said that children living in poverty have lower aspirations and are more likely to face unemployment.
The health of people in the most deprived communities in Wales is another area of concern. Figures from the 2011 Census revealed that of the 10 local authority areas with the lowest levels of 'good' health, five are in Wales.
