Sioned Williams launches Water Poverty Survey

Today, I'm launching a new survey to learn more about my constituents' experiences in paying their water bills. 

10.3% of households in Neath Port Talbot are on social tariffs with Dŵr Cymru; 9.9% in Bridgend, and 8.8% in Swansea. These figures are higher in both Neath Port Talbot and Bridgend compared to the Welsh average of 8.8%.

Over the last year, Citizen’s Advice have seen 11% more people coming for advice on water and sewerage debts in the South Wales West region (NPT, Bridgend and Swansea) compared to 2019-20.

With all this in mind, it's clear to me that measures need to be introduced to cut water bills for Welsh households.

As part of this, I would like to learn about your experiences of navigating water bills and debt. If you live in the South Wales West region, please share your experiences with me, so that your voice can be heard.

You can do this by filling in my survey here

Alternatively, you're always welcome to email me about this or any other issue: [email protected]
