The Bevan Foundation joins the Welsh Government Expert Group on the cost of living crisis

As the cost of living crisis deepens, the Bevan Foundation is pleased to join the Welsh Government’s Expert Group, whose work will inform a Welsh Government’s Cabinet committee.  

The group, chaired by Prof Rachel Ashworth of Cardiff University, also includes experts from academia, charities, local government and UK think tanks. The group is tasked with informing the work of the  Welsh Government’s Cabinet Committee on the cost of living and the Welsh response.

The group made its first presentation to the Committee on 6th March 2023, with the Foundation’s Director, Victoria Winckler, outlining the findings from the Foundation’s Snapshot of Poverty Winter 2023 and pulling together forecasts for the next year.  Other speakers included Cardiff University, National Energy Action Cymru and Citizen’s Advice Cymru. 

The group is expected to continue its work for several months. 

Minutes of the Cabinet Committee on the Cost of Living are available here.
