On 13 December the Welsh Government published its Child Poverty Strategy: Progress Report 2016. The strategy includes five key objectives for tackling child poverty and improving the outcomes of low income families in Wales.
The report can be viewed at: http://gov.wales/topics/people-and-communities/people/children-and-young-people/child-poverty/?lang=en
Tackling poverty is a key national and local policy driver. Organisations seeking funding may find the report useful to help evidence any future funding bids.
Conwy People ’s Partnership, is assisting Public Health Wales with their campaign to raise awareness of ‘seasonal flu’.
Influenza, more commonly known as the flu, is a respiratory illness, affecting the lungs and airways, and is the result of an infection caused by an influenza virus.
Flu vaccination by injection (the “flu jab”) is available free every year on the NHS to protect adults at risk (and some children) of flu and its complications. There is also a nasal spray vaccine for all two, three and four-year-olds and children in school in reception class, year one, two and three, as well as children aged from 2 to 18 with a long-term health condition.
Flu can be unpleasant, but if you’re otherwise healthy it usually clears up on its own within a week. However, flu can be more severe in certain people, such as:
Anyone in these groups is more likely to develop potentially serious complications of flu such as pneumonia (a serious lung infection), so it’s recommended that they have a flu vaccine every year to protect them.

Are you involved in promoting or providing a service that improves health or wellbeing?
Would you like to promote that service on Dewis Cymru?
Dewis is an online directory of health and wellbeing related services that are available for people living in Wales. It will include all manner of services – from digital inclusion sessions, to substance abuse support and services helping to maintain independent living. Essentially, it will act as a comprehensive guide to what is available in a person’s location.
At present, work is ongoing to populate Dewis Cymru with the services that people will want to know about. If you would like to register your service, you can do so by visiting http://www.dewis.wales and registering.
We look forward to Third Sector Services appearing on the National Dewis Portal highlighting the range that is available.
