Volume 1 examines the extent of poverty and volume 2 the different dimensions of disadvantage. Published by Policy Press on November 29, Funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, the research is based on two major surveys carried out in and two qualitative research studies. The research found high levels of deprivation across the UK with severe impacts on people's lives.

Adverse childhood experiences are stressful experiences that happen during childhood that directly harm a child such as, physical or sexual abuse or affect the environment in which they live such as growing up in a house with domestic violence Investing in digital skills would enable public services to transfer high volume services to the Internet, reducing the cost of public services whilst stimulating innovation in public service delivery through improved citizen insight.
What are we going to do? By understanding the impact adverse childhood experiences have we know that by intervening early we will be better placed to develop and implement long term, integrated, sustainable solutions based on building the resilience of individuals and the community.
It benefits from good community leadership and activity; It has a range of challenges and barriers related to deprivation; and; It is geographically compact and offers a relevant community profile to allow us to trial new ways of working which, if successful, can be adapted and deployed across the rest of the county borough We need to be able to provide the children of Sandfields West with the same opportunities as those in more advantaged areas.
The pilot will be based on connecting children and their parents to the existing network of services available in the area, as well as bringing new or necessary services closer to the community where appropriate and exploring where improvements can be made.

The vulnerability faced by many people and the risks associated with this, such as; poor health, poverty, reduced social cohesion and community safety issues, are causing real challenges in some communities and unsustainable pressures on public services. These communities play an important part in the growth and development of the individuals and families who live there.
Together with the family, a community can define personal aspirations and opportunities that can define our life chances. These can be positive and provide conditions for families, communities, areas and regions to flourish. However, some families and communities may need additional support because of their vulnerabilities and this can be delivered through locally based services.
This is another opportunity for public services and the third sector to work differently, put the citizen at the heart of our service delivery, have a better understanding of needs in our communities and be better equipped to intervene earlier. The work of the Public Services Board will support the work that has started in social services to develop an asset-based approach to the way we work with communities, building on the strengths of people and local areas and not just focusing on addressing deficits.
It will also complement and enhance our community safety work. The initial work is proposed in the Melin and Briton Ferry with the intention of spreading the learning across the county borough. The ultimate aim is to give future generations an equal chance to access opportunities and develop aspirations for themselves, their families and the communities they live in.
During the Well-being Assessment, older people told us that the extent to which they feel they have control over day to day life is central to their cultural well-being including their ability to take part in activities they enjoy and are interested in.
History, heritage and sense of place were also referred to by older people as contributing to cultural well-being as well as the use of local services and facilities such as libraries, swimming pools, theatre and classes which they made use of.
Accessing these services promoted a sense of community involvement and personal development for older people. Volunteering was also highlighted by older people as contributing to cultural well-being as it provided chances for social contact. The Board identified the following key priorities: Develop age-friendly and dementia supportive communities; Reduce the number of falls; Reduce the prevalence of loneliness and unwanted social isolation; Provide positive learning, employment and volunteering opportunities; Reduce poverty including fuel poverty and cold-related deaths; and Increase awareness and reporting of crimes that target older people.
In developing effective strategies to address the issues highlighted within this work-stream those responsible for implementing this work will: Put an emphasis on the prevention agenda in order to reduce the future reliance on front line services; Consider the impact of intervention strategies on well-being goals, on other objectives and on the objectives of other public bodies Work and communicate with partners and stakeholders more effectively to ensure better outcomes for our communities; Involve older people in developing our strategies; and Reduce poverty including fuel poverty and cold-related deaths; and Ensure that we consider both short term and long-term needs when developing our future strategies.
We aim to support existing Ageing Well initiatives and develop future collaborative interventions in order to ensure a cohesive and partner based approach. The MECC aims to empower staff working in public and third sector organisations to recognise the role they have in promoting healthy lifestyles, supporting behaviour change and reducing risk within our communities.
Initially the delivery of these interventions will be based on a pilot scheme within a local area. As this progresses we will fully evaluate the pilot scheme to identify areas of best practice and areas for future development prior to expanding the scheme throughout other communities within Neath Port Talbot.
This will be an opportunity for all partners and stakeholders to provide feedback on the preventative strategies and interventions with a view to further enhance these initiatives.
The vision for the long term is to deliver genuine cultural change within the communities of Neath Port Talbot.Deprivation and poverty can then be defined as a condition in which a person is deprived of the essentials for reaching a minimum standard of well-being and life.
The social exclusion approach also regards poverty and deprivation as a multidimensional issue. Lifting at least 20 million people out of the risk of poverty or social exclusion is one of the headline targets of the Europe indicators; this article also covers more detailed aspects such as income poverty and severe material deprivation in the EU.

Nearly forty countries around the world are taking part in the global initiative, including. The lack of progress in building self-sufficiency since the beginning of the War on Poverty 50 years ago is due in major part to the welfare system itself.
