Over one hundred and fifty people have now taken part in the Bevan Foundation’s online survey to understand more about household spending patterns.

The survey is part of the Three Towns project looking at the barriers and opportunities to the growth of the foundational economy in three towns in the south Wales valleys; Cwmafan in Neath Port Talbot, Treherbert in Rhondda Cynon Taf and Treharris in Merthyr Tydfil.

Following on from its recent report looking at the business capacity of the foundational economy in the three towns, the Bevan Foundation is exploring local spending patterns and opportunities. The  survey will inform the Bevan Foundation’s work looking at how money circulates around  communities, on what and where people spend their money, whether coronavirus has altered spending habits and what would enable people spend more money locally.

Project lead Lloyd Jones said “The feedback has been fantastic feedback with the hundred and fiftieth survey completed just a few weeks after launch with more coming in every day.  The responses so far have also helped generate further discussions and contact with people who have shared their experiences and views that are all useful in understanding how the local economy in each place functions.”

The survey is open to all residents of the three towns, is completely confidential and all entrants are entered into a prize draw for £25. The survey closes on Monday 26th October.
