What Works in Tackling Poverty


What Works in Tackling Poverty

The PPIW, as a member of the What Works Network, is leading a major programme of research on What Works in Tackling Poverty.

The research draws on relevant international experience but place particular emphasis on the importance of cross-jurisdictional learning between different parts of the UK. Our researchers work closely with policy makers, practitioners and other potential users.  Since tackling poverty has been identified as a particular priority by the Welsh Government, the Public Policy Institute for Wales works directly with Welsh Ministers and their officials  to maximise the opportunities for learning from the research findings. This work forms part of the third work programme.

The programme started in October 2014 and will run for two years in the first instance.

Our Projects Are:
Dynamic Analysis of Poverty and Vulnerability in Wales
The Role of Housing and Housing Providers in Tackling Poverty Experienced by Young People
Harnessing Growth Sectors for Poverty Reduction
What are the Alternatives to High Cost Credit?
