The Equality, Local Government and Communities Committee agreed to undertake three inquiries which look at poverty in Wales.
The second strand of this work was a short, focused piece of work looking at Communities First. The Committee intended this work to help shape future policy and the transitional arrangements as the programme closed down by reviewing what had worked effectively.
Terms of reference
The terms of reference for the inquiry were to consider:
As part of its evidence gathering, the Committee held a variety of oral evidence sessions and held a consultation. A schedule of oral evidence can be viewed below.
The Committee published its initial findings in on 25 July 2017. This was in order to enable the Committee to compile and publish the findings as quickly as possible.
The Committee published the full report: Communities First – lessons learnt on 18 October 2017.
