Poverty and Benefits – Have Your Say

Diverse Cymru have created a survey on poverty and benefits.

We hear a lot in research, the news and in the press about the increased uptake in the use of food banks, and people not being able to pay their bills. We would like to hear from you.

How are you coping and what is happening in your life?

Maybe you have had to use a food bank or choose between paying a bill or buying food. Perhaps you have coped but it has been difficult with not enough money coming in.

We want to know your experiences and and what could make your experiences better.

Do you claim benefits?
Has the system been easy to understand?
Do you think you have been treated fairly and with compassion?
We would like to know about your experiences.

We would like to hear from you about your experiences and ideas in order to feed that back to people in power.

The survey is available online here:
