Wales triumph in Welfare Aware Awards

We have been notified today that the ‘Your Benefits Are Changing’ campaign has won the Welfare Aware Awards in conjunction with 24housing and allpay. We submitted the entry jointly with RCT homes, were shortlisted by a panel of judges, and then clinched the public vote ahead of Places for People.

In total, more than 2,000 votes were cast and, on behalf of all working on the campaign, we would like to say a huge thank you to all who voted.

64 organisation have now signed up to support the campaign and are using the branding in some shape or form including a number of local authorities (Wrexham, Pembrokeshire, Swansea) and a number of advice agencies (National Debtline, Disability Wales and Job Centre Plus).

We are working on the next phase of the campaign including new messages and media channels and will be discussing this at the PR network, due to take place next Friday (June 14th).

We have recently updated the website with new resources – www.yourbenefitsarechanging.co.uk

We will be presenting the campaign later this month at a roundtable event in London.
