ITV Wales’ flagship current affairs programme Wales This Week featured the struggle many households experience trying to make ends meet. We were pleased that our Director, Victoria Winckler, contributed to the programme, providing insights into the root causes of the difficulties faced by the people featured in the programme.

Speaking to the programme, Victoria said:

I think the period we’re going through is probably the most challenging I remember seeing,” Dr Winckler said. 

I think the big difference compared with the past is that people’s incomes are mostly fixed. If they get help through the social security system, most of those benefit rates haven’t gone up in a number of years and yet the cost of living is going up day by day. 

And I think it’s putting pressure on individuals and on families that we haven’t seen in a very long time
