The Bevan Foundation has, once again, made the headlines in January

It was a good start to the New Year, with the Foundation’s work making multiple appearances in the media throughout January.


Early in the new year, the Bevan Foundation’s work on Airbnb was referenced by the North Wales Live to emphasize the impact of tourism on Welsh communities. 

 The Foundation’s work on productive community assets was also referenced in an article by Senedd research to show the opportunities community ownership provides for community wealth by providing local employment and supporting local supply chains.   

Poverty and cost of living crisis  

Opening its article on the need to update Educational Maintenance Allowance, the Morning Star Online referred to how the Bevan Foundation had noted that the value of social security benefits is at its lowest levels in decades.  

Later in the month, the Brecon & Radnor Express reported on how Cefin Campbell MS called on the Welsh Government to address rural poverty. To emphasise financial pressures, he used the finding that the median earnings in May 2022 were the lowest in Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion, Conwy, Gwynedd and Powys.  

On a similar note, The County Times referenced the Bevan Foundations findings on the consequences of child poverty for mental health, self-esteem, physical health and educational outcomes in an article covering child poverty in rural Wales.  

The ‘Snapshot of Poverty’ report from summer 2022 has continued to be referenced into the New Year. On the 19th of January, a  Senedd research article  used the Bevan Foundation’s findings to show the impact of the cost-of-living crisis on the physical and mental health of people in Wales. On a similar note, the Foundation’s work on child poverty and its consequences for mental health, self-esteem, physical health and educational outcomes was cited by the County Times.
