Child poverty scandal - let's do something about it

Three of the worst four wards in Wales for child poverty are in Wrexham. 

Almost half the children in the Queensway, Wynnstay and Cartrefle wards in Caia Park are in child poverty.
The shocking statistics reveal Wales as the only nation in the UK to see a rise in child poverty - the overall figure has risen to almost 30%. However three of the five wards in Caia Park estate are at 47.9%
If you think this is a scandal and we need a change, please support our call for the Welsh Government to act now to reduce child poverty.
"The fact that Wales is seeing a rise in child poverty while countries like Scotland are heading in the other direction makes it clear that we need to break free of the shackles of the UK Government's failing welfare policies. We want to see welfare policy devolved to we can start to improve the lives of the next generation rather than condemning them to poverty."

We, the undersigned, call for the Welsh Government to act now to reduce child poverty in Wales.
