Engagement and pre-consultation - Have your say about child poverty in wales

The Welsh Government is asking children and young people, families and community members, and organisations that support and speak out for children in poverty to help us make decisions about what we should do to tackle child poverty.

This engagement work is the start of work to decide what we will include in a draft Child Poverty Strategy for Wales. This will then be shared as a 12-week formal consultation exercise.

This evidence has helped us to start to think about what we need to talk to people about. A strategy explains what we plan to do, why we plan to do it and how we will know if we are achieving what we want to achieve.

We need your help to decide what to include in a formal consultation on a new Child Poverty Strategy for Wales

Voluntary Action Merthyr Tydfil will be holding two short session engagement events to enable community members and Third Sector to feed into the pre-consultation.
