Cuts Watch Cymru is a network of charities and voluntary organisations in Wales working on the front-line who have come together to monitor the impact of the reforms to the welfare system on people in Wales. The network will attempt to call on public and third sector bodies to take action and soften the blow of cuts to public spending.
No job, no money, no home – just a few of the realities faced by thousands of people in Wales today as the economic climate continues to bite – and the reason why 17 non-statutory organisations in Wales have joined forces to launch Cuts Watch Cymru.
The network will research how the cuts in public spending and services and the welfare reform have affected geographical areas of Wales or groups of people. The Network will show how good practice in implementing the proposed policies has minimised the impacts on vulnerable people.
