A report released today warns that the Welsh Government's Tackling Poverty Plan is unlikely to succeed if it overlooks the specific needs of different ethnic groups living in poverty.
The Joseph Rowntree Foundations conducted research based on real life experiences of poverty from 27 families from five different ethnic groups - Bangladeshi, Pakistani, Somali, Polish and white British/Welsh.
It found that families in the different groups faced similar barriers that prevented them from climbing out of poverty, such as the difficulty of securing a good job.
The respondents all saw employment as the main pathway out of poverty as well as education and where they lived.
