18/03/2014 – APF Malta welcomes the Green Paper ‘A Framework for Poverty Reduction and for Social Inclusion’ issued by the Maltese Government, with satisfaction and considers this document as an important step to combat poverty and social exclusion. The Green Paper stands as a thorough and positive roadmap to tackle this reality. As a network of NGOs working with people experiencing poverty, APF Malta collected feedback from all member organisations on this Green Paper and forwarded feedback to the Ministry for the Family and Social Solidarity.
APF Malta has also been invited to form part of a sub-committee within the Ministry for the Family and Social Solidarity on Child Poverty. This sub-committee is working to set a child poverty strategy and to set a way forward to tackle this reality.
