Tackling child poverty remains a priority for the Welsh Government, many of the levers for change lie with the UK Government. However, there is action to be taken in Wales to improve the day to day lives of and outcomes for children and young people living in poverty.  We want every child and young person, no matter what their family income is, to be able to realise their rights.

We know that we need to plan how to do this for children, young people and families who face extra barriers because of discrimination related to gender, disability, ethnicity or sexuality.
