The Welsh Government provide funding to local authorities to improve outcomes for children, young people and families.


Each local authority has developed a Families First Action Plan which sets out how they will implement Families First locally:

  • working age people in low income families gain, and progress within employment
  • children, young people and families, in or at risk of poverty, achieve their potential
  • children, young people and families are healthy and enjoy well-being
  • families are confident, nurturing resilient and safe.


We will also be establishing performance measures to tell us how well the programme is performing within local authorities.


Families First supports the Welsh Government's  child poverty strategy and works alongside other programmes.
