A Child Poverty Task Force has been launched by Powys County Council’s Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for a Fairer Powys, Cllr Matthew Dorrance.
The task force will map the support that is currently provided by the Council and its partners across Powys to support families and address any gaps that are found.
“One of the commitments in our progressive partnership agreement was to form a child poverty task force to work across all the public services to alleviate the growing crisis of child poverty in our communities,” said Cllr Dorrance.
“We cannot build the stronger, fairer, greener Powys we want without tackling child poverty and its causes. I’m determined to bring council services, partners and communities together to find a local plan to tackle poverty and increase social mobility.”
