In February 2017, the Cabinet Secretary for Communities and Children announced that the Communities First Programme would be phased out by March 2018. 

In the announcement he conceded that whilst "...Communities First has been successful in its impact on many individuals in poverty, ...it has not had an impact on overall poverty levels in Wales, which remain stubbornly high."

The absence of any plans to replace the Communities First Programme has led some to question if the Welsh government has given up on tackling poverty altogether.

Speakers and agenda for this debate will be confirmed shortly.
