CIH Cymru presents evidence to UN Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights


Professor Philip Alston, the UN Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty, has been visiting the UK to engage with the public, third sector organisations, government bodies and politicians to build up a contemporary picture of poverty.

As part of a partnership of organisations selected to present evidence to the Special Rapporteur, CIH Cymru Director Matt Dicks joined Shelter Cymru and Tai Pawb in advancing evidence relating to:

  • the overall impact of poverty in Wales
  • the challenges of welfare reform and the impact on affordability
  • the ongoing homelessness challenges and the current picture of service provision
  • the opportunities provided by providing everyone with the right to housing
