This year marks a year since the formation of the Welsh Labour Government. A year where Welsh Labour ministers have been standing up for Wales and standing up for communities like Cardiff South and Penarth.
A raft of measures have been rolled out over the last year, including:
In Education the most generous student support package anywhere in the UK. An additional 500m for 21st Century Schools, part of an overall Welsh Labour Government investment of £2bn on new and refurbished school buildings across Wales.
The health service has also benefited, Wales now has the best ambulance response times anywhere in the UK and the NHS estate is seeing significant investment.
Welsh Labour has also hit the ground running in meeting its target of 20,000 new affordable homes and increasing the capital limit – increasing the amount of money people can keep when they go into care.
The way this Welsh Labour Government has hit the ground running in this first year is making a real difference in my constituency. From investment in schools and our NHS buildings to making our social care system fairer, this is a government that acts in the interest of ordinary people across Wales.
