Modelling the Need for Advice on Social Welfare Topics


The Welsh Government commissioned Wavehill and the Civic Research Initiative to estimate quantitatively the need for advice on social welfare for each of the 22 local authority areas in Wales. Model-based estimations were applied to estimate the extent of information, general advice and specialist help that would be required.


The model-based estimations were based on the prevalence of different types of justiciable problems that were assigned to six social welfare categories:


                                          i.           Welfare Benefits

                                          ii.           Debt

                                          iii.          Consumer and Finance (including financial guidance)

                                          iv.          Housing and Neighbors

                                          v.           Employment

                                          vi.          Discrimination


The modelling drew on data sourced from the Civil and Social Justice Survey and the National Survey for Wales.The report has now been published and can be found on the following web link:
