The Archbishop of Wales is calling for people to 'stand up for what is right' when people living in poverty are labelled as skivers and shirkers.

The Church in Wales and Oxfam are launching the 'Truth and Lies About Poverty' report which highlights the myths surrounding people in poverty.

Archbishop Dr Morgan says: "We are all members of one community. We must speak out against the rumours, misrepresentations and prejudice that undermine our solidarity with one another."
