'Gaps in Welsh Government policy' on poverty

There are calls for the Welsh Government to provide better intergration of poverty and equality policies.

It comes after a report by The Joseph Rowntree Foundation said 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 Welsh Government has signalled its commitment to both reducing poverty and mitigating its impact upon people. The report demonstrates that now there needs to be better integration of poverty and equality policies; that there are still some gaps in the policy and the Welsh Government needs to find out if it is policies are working for different groups.

– Duncan Holtom, Head of Research at the People and Work Unit

The Welsh Government has been contacted for a response.
