Our Tackling Poverty Action Plan aims to tackle the impacts of poverty now and prevent poverty in the future.

The Welsh Government's commitment to social justice makes it essential in the current climate that we continue to tackle poverty. We'll do this by prioritising the needs of the poorest and protecting those most at risk of poverty and exclusion.

The Action Plan aims to achieve better outcomes for everyone by choosing options which work best in the long term.

It focuses on 3 actions:

  • preventing poverty
  • helping people into work
  • improving the lives of people living in poverty.
