Taking action on the cost of living crisis in Wales

Thursday 19th January 2023
With Public Health Network Cymru

The current cost of living crisis is not just a temporary economic squeeze, it is a long-term public health issue affecting the whole population. The impact on health and well-being in Wales has the potential to put it on the same scale as the COVID-19 pandemic, which had already exacerbated existing inequalities in Wales. The cost of living crisis is having, and will continue to have, wide-ranging and long-term impacts on health inequalities in Wales.

Our knowledgeable panel of experts provided an overview of:

  • The latest cost of living data in Wales
  • The health impacts of the cost of living crisis in Wales
  • Key areas for action for the public sector, private sector and third sector in Wales
  • What approaches work best to improve health in the short, medium and longer term
  • What support is available across Welsh and UK Government
  • How local authorities can use a behavioural science based approach

Speakers included:

Manon Roberts – Senior Policy Officer, Public Health Wales
Ben Saltmarsh – Head of Wales, National Energy Action
Judith Langdon – Social Justice Innovation Manager, Welsh Local Government Association
Alice Cline – Senior Behavioural Change Specialist, Public Health Wales
Dr Steffan Evans – Head of Policy (Poverty), Bevan Foundation
Grace Robinson – Living Wage Programme Officer, Cynnal Cymru
