Annual Child & Family Poverty Survey 2021

This survey is being hosted externally by Children in Wales.

Children in Wales has been carrying out an Annual Child & Family Poverty Survey for the last four years, which helps us to understand levels and trends in child poverty in Wales. We have again worked with the End Child Poverty Network Cymru (ECPN) to inform our questions.

We know that those living in poverty have been hardest hit by the pandemic. The information you provide is important. It helps us to understand the current issues and informs our work with policy makers across Wales. Please take 10 minutes to complete the survey. Your opinions and experiences are valued and important to us.

We have two surveys – one for completion by practitioners and professionals, and one for completion by children and young people themselves. Both surveys will close on 21 May 2021.

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

We will publish the results at the end of July 2021 and these will be available to everyone. Hopefully the results will also help shape your work.

Thank you for your support.

Safer recruitment

09:30 – 16:30

A one-day course

Gain the skills to protect children and young people through safer recruitment. Organisations and individuals who work with children and young people, or are involved in providing services for them, have a duty to safeguard and promote their welfare. Having the right staff working in your setting is an essential element of your safeguarding duties. If you recruit staff and/or volunteers into the children and young people’s workforce, you should be trained in safer recruitment practices.

Berlin Declaration: Leaving Care Entitlement

In Germany, as in other countries, care leavers need a “leaving care” entitlement in order to strengthen their legal position in youth welfare services for the transition to adult life and to further develop transitional support on a broad basis.
