About this topic

We are standing up for Wales during very tough times, working towards our goal of a more equal Wales, where people can reach their potential no matter what their background or circumstances.

Our job is to support children, families and deprived communities, to ensure their voices are heard, that they are listened to, involved in and able to contribute to our society.

We are working to prevent poverty, help people out of poverty and help build resilient communities where families and individuals can access the support they need. We are helping children to get the best start in life, and supporting families.

We are investing in and working with communities in our most deprived areas, to help people improve their skills, their health and their employment.

We are taking action to embed equality, including the rights of children and young people, across the Welsh Government and the public sector and supporting the third sector to play its part in achieving the outcomes we are working towards.
