Each year, Children in Wales, in partnership with the End Child Poverty Network Cymru (ECPN), conduct the Child & Family Poverty Surveys. We are now in our 8th year.

The findings from these surveys help us to identify and understand more about the current issues and impact poverty has on children, young people and families in Wales. Your experiences and views will help us identify and share this information widely.

 Your voices really do make a difference. For example, last year’s survey findings were widely disseminated and used to influence, inform and change practice and policy across Wales. They were also used for reports by Public Health Wales and to inform the new Child Poverty Strategy, launched in January 2024.

Whatever your role or sector, your experiences and views are greatly valued and important to us. Whether you’re a practitioner, educator, policy maker or manager, if your role includes a remit for children, young people and families, then we want to hear from you. 

Please take 15 minutes to complete the survey 

We have 3 surveys, 1 for practitioners and professionals, 1 for parents and carers and 1 for children and young people themselves: 

Survey for practitioners and professionals

Survey for parents and carers

Survey for children and young people

All surveys will close by 5 June 2024. 

We are looking for as much engagement as possible and would appreciate your help in distributing the surveys to your colleagues, networks and, where possible, to parents and children and young people as it is crucial that we also hear from them directly.   

We will publish and share the findings in October  

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

Thank you for your support.
