Annual Child and Family Poverty Survey 2022 now live!

Children in Wales has been carrying out an Annual Child & Family Poverty Survey for the last five years, helping us to understand the issues and impact poverty on children, young people and families in Wales. We have again worked with the End Child Poverty Network Cymru (ECPN) to inform our questions.

The findings from last year’s surveys were bleak and unacceptable, but they have already been used to update, inform and change policy and practice. This needs to continue. We know that those living in poverty have been hardest hit by the pandemic and this is further exacerbated by the recent increases to the cost of living.

We are looking for your experiences and views, helping us to provide and share further information about the impact poverty has on the children, young people and families in Wales.

Please take 20 minutes to complete the survey.

Your opinions and experiences are valued and hugely important to us.

We have two surveys

 Survey for practitioners and professionals

Survey for children and young people

Both surveys will close on 17 June 2022

We are looking for as much engagement as possible and would appreciate your help in disseminating the surveys to your colleagues, networks and where possible, to children and young people themselves.

We will publish and widely disseminate the findings in mid September.

Our aim is that the findings will again help to shape and inform policy and practice in Wales.

Thank you for your support.
