All Wales People First are very worried about the cost of living crisis.

The cost of living crisis will mean that it will cost people more money for things like:

  • Travel
  • Gas
  • Electricity
  • Food

This would mean people who do not have much money may struggle to pay their bills.

Get into debt.

Or not be able to eat or keep warm.

Most of our members are on benefits.

Which means they do not have much money.

There doesn’t seem to be any sign that they will be given more money to help them with the cost of living crisis.

So we need to know how the cost of living crisis is affecting you.

Is it affecting how much food you can afford to buy?

How you are travelling across Wales?

How you are able to afford Gas or Electric.

Anything else that has affected you.

We want to use this information to understand the impact on the cost of living for people with learning disabilities in Wales.

So that we can report this to the Welsh Government.

And make sure that people with learning disabilities get the support they need.

Please contact us.

Please share your story.

You can contact the Policy and Communications Manager Kelly Stuart on to share your story on our website

We may also contact some of you to check out how the cost-of-living crisis is affecting you.

We want to hear your experiences.
