The National Lottery Community Fund developed Helping Working Families to tackle in-work poverty. It came about after our research and stakeholders told us that there was an increasing number of families affected by poverty despite having at least one person in the household who worked.

In 2018 the National Lottery funded programme awarded £6.2 million to 13 projects across Wales. The projects would build on the strengths already present within families and communities and involve the wider community and those that benefited from their services to develop their own enduring and resilient solutions to in-work poverty.

As the Helping Working Families programme comes to an end, we welcome you to join us and find out more about the impacts of the programme and the publication of our report.
