– Jeff Cuthbert, Communities & Tackling Poverty Minister
We have a clear aim of helping some of the most hard to reach people in our society to find work and improve their life chances. These are often individuals who for a long time have not been in any form of employment or training. Some may have a long history of unemployment in their family. We will provide one-to-one advice and help through our new Lift employment brokers to make sure we are doing all we can to find the right opportunities."
Households in Wales where no adult is working are to be offered work and training under a new scheme launched today. A programme introduced by the Welsh Government will provide 5,000 opportunities as part of its plan to tackle poverty,
