Child Poverty Strategy
Since the Child Poverty Strategy was published in 2011, there has been real progress to align the strategic priorities set out in the Programme for Government, the Child Poverty Strategy, the Tackling Poverty Action Plan and the Strategic Equality Plan.
We have a clear focus on tackling poverty as a whole government – and are building on the evidence, evaluation and good practice that has emerged over the past three years. This joined up approach has strengthened the opportunity to improve the outcomes of children, young people and families living in poverty.
This first progress report highlights a number of key developments in Wales. The percentage of children living in workless households has been decreasing since 2009; the percentage of working age adults with no qualifications has reduced each year since 2006; and there has been a small reduction in the education attainment gap between those eligible for free school meals and those not eligible between 2009-10 and 2011-12.
We remain committed to the target of eradicating child poverty by 2020. The public sector, private sector and wider third sector have much to contribute and much to gain from tackling poverty. We remain committed to working with all of our partners to deliver on the objectives of the Child Poverty Strategy for Wales and our Tackling Poverty Action Plan.
