The Public Policy Institute for Wales (PPIW) was established in January 2014. It aims to improve the lives of the people of Wales by providing Welsh Government Ministers with authoritative independent analysis and advice. The PPIW undertakes two interrelated lines of work; working for the Welsh Government and our research into What Works in Tackling Poverty: The Welsh link to the ‘What Works’ network. This free evening seminar provided an overview and update on their work. An audience Q&A and discussion will follow the presentation.
