Webinar poverty series: Session 6

North Wales Community Support Hubs – building personal and community resilience against the effects of poverty

Children in Wales is delighted to work alongside representatives from Betsi Cadwaladr University Health board to present the next webinar in our poverty-related series.

At this webinar, you will find out how a series of small pilot projects, implemented during the pandemic, have made a mark in their communities.

Using existing service providers in communities, the hubs have a network of around 140 third sector organisations and have been a ‘one-stop-shop’ physically and virtually for over 20,000 residents in the last six months.

Find out more about what makes these hubs different and how communities can establish their own hub to help break the cycle of generational poverty, over time.


Lisa Goodier is Lead Manager for Protect for the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board in North Wales. She has a background working with the DWP, HM Prison Service, local authority and the private and voluntary sectors.

Examples of Positive Practice – Can you help?

Are you working to mitigate the impact of poverty for children, young people and families, through local practice, policy or projects? If so, we’d love to hear about it. 

We are looking for examples from across Wales that we can share with a wide audience through our series of poverty-related webinars. All examples are welcome regardless of size or setting, from internal staff awareness and changing attitudes, to community or county-wide projects. All have an important role to play and our audiences are keen to learn from you.
