New project: The Future of Doing Good

On 24th November we joined the Big Lottery Fund in Wales to start their nationwide conversation on the future of ‘doing good’ in Wales. It builds on the research carried out for the Big Lottery Fund’s report, ‘The future of doing good in the UK’, which can be downloaded here.

Keep a look out on our website for further updates on this project, and in the meantime catch up with this guest article by Rob Roffe from the Big Lottery Fund. 

New project: Better Futures for Disadvantaged Young People

bevan-project

Our latest project looks at the options available to young people in Wales who leave school without five A*-C GCSEs.

Last year, this was the situation which four in ten young people faced, with those from low-income families at much greater risk.

We want to improve the opportunities for disadvantaged young people in Wales by using their experiences to identify where change is needed.

Please support this project by donating to our crowdfunding campaign.

New report: Attendance Allowance in Wales

The final report on our work with the Welsh Local Government Association looking at the possible devolution of Attendance Allowance has been published.

Among other things, it recommends that Welsh Government should be preparing for the devolution of Attendance Allowance now by ensuring that everyone in Wales who is eligible for the benefit is claiming it.

And other highlights from the last month:

Thank you for helping us to produce ideas that change Wales.
