Richard Thurston (Welsh Government) will respond.
Sioned is a Lecturer in Social Policy at Cardiff University’s School of Social Sciences and currently completing her ESRC Fellowship examining devolved, sub-state policy to address youth unemployment and labour market precarity across the UK, and the role of civil society in this. Her interest in devolved social policy originated from a long term study of Communities First, the Welsh Government’s key policy to address poverty in Wales. This presentation will draw on that research and the more recent sub-state comparison of the four UK nations.
Richard Thurston is Deputy Chief Social Researcher at the Welsh Government.
This is a free event & everyone is welcome.
The webinar will be hosted via Zoom.
