Access our State of Wales briefings

Our State of Wales briefings are one of our most popular benefits, available exclusively to Bevan Foundation subscribers and supporters.

They provide authoritative, easy-to-access insights into how different groups of people are faring in Wales today in key areas of:

  • Employment and work
  • Income
  • Housing
  • Education
  • Health
  • Population


Our State of Wales briefings will:

  • help you and your organisation to gain a deeper understanding of equality and social justice in Wales today
  • enable you to identify issues facing specific groups in the population, helping you to better target your activities
  • save time and money looking for vital statistics

You can be confident that the briefings are reliable. Each briefing looks at carefully-selected indicators, drawing on those used by the Equality and Human Rights Commission, UN and others, and the most up-to-date statistics.

Our subscribers use their briefings in a wide variety of ways, for example:

  • in speeches to the National Assembly for Wales
  • in funding bids
  • to inform their organisation’s strategic planning
  • to keep their knowledge up-to-date

We also offer subscribers the opportunity to support additional briefings on a relevant topic at a highly competitive price. These briefings can be co-branded with your organisation’s logo and use mutually-agreed key indicators and data.

Each month’s State of Wales briefing is emailed direct to your inbox, as a PDF, for easy sharing with colleagues.  Copies are also available in the ‘Supporters’ area’ of our website so you can access the latest issue, as well as back-copies, when you need them.
