Children in Wales Annual Child & Family Poverty Survey 2024

Each year, Children in Wales, in partnership with the End Child Poverty Network Cymru (ECPN), conduct the Child & Family Poverty Surveys. The findings from these surveys help to identify and understand more about the current issues and impact poverty has on children, young people and families in Wales.

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. Whether you’re a practitioner, educator, policy maker or manager, if your role includes a remit for children, young people and families, Children in Wales wants to hear from you.

It takes 15 minutes to complete the survey.

There are 3 surveys, 1 for practitioners and professionals, 1 for parents and carers and 1 for children and young people themselves:

All surveys will close by 5 June 2024

Children in Wales 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 parents and children and young people, as it is crucial that Children in Wales also hear from them directly.

Children in Wales will publish and widely disseminate the findings in October. The aim is that the findings will again help to shape and inform policy and practice in Wales.
