Advice NI is very concerned about the impact of welfare cuts on vulnerable, low income households.

In the current period of recession, even more people have become reliant on the social security system. Advice NI are keen to assess the everyday experiences and challenges faced by people reliant upon a social security system, which has been subjected to very significant cuts.

In order to try and give low income households a voice, Advice NI has developed an online survey aimed at people reliant upon the social security system; including needing help with their mortgage or rent; help with childcare costs; help because they are sick or disabled; or generally finding it difficult to pay bills and make ends meet.

Advice NI are asking anyone who provides a service to / or knows of anyone affected by the cuts, to log on and complete this survey.

All of the information collected will be kept in the strictest confidence and used for research purposes only. A report will be produced with the aim of raising awareness of the impact of the welfare cuts on people in Northern Ireland.

To complete the survey go to opens link in new window www.surveymonkey.com
