Swansea Poverty Partnership Forum

The Swansea Poverty Partnership Forum brings together the key organisational stakeholders in Swansea to align resources and develop collaborative working on the tackling poverty agenda.

The forum considers current issues, trends and opportunities, it enhances networking, partnership working and allocation of resources to support better outcomes for the people of Swansea.

The priorities of the Swansea Poverty Partnership Forum broadly align with Swansea Council's vision of aspiring to achieve a Swansea in which:

  • Income poverty is not a barrier to doing well at school, having a healthy and vibrant life, developing skills and qualifications and having a fulfilling occupation.
  • Service poverty is tackled through targeting resources where they have the most effect, with decisions about that made in conjunction with service users.
  • Participation is enjoyed by all our residents, who have the opportunity and resources to join in with social, cultural and leisure activities and decision-making.
  • Residents Maximise their Income and get the most out of the money that they have. 
  • Residents avoid paying the 'Poverty Premium', the extra costs people on low incomes must pay for essentials such as fuel and transport.
  • Barriers to Employment such as transport and childcare are removed.

The forum meets on a quarterly basis and is facilitated by the Tackling Poverty Service at Swansea Council. 

Members represent a wide range of organisations from the public and third sectors.
