This paper examines how people on low income construct their lives more in relation to their social and cultural worlds than to issues of low income and material deprivation in rural Wales. The findings reveal important disconnections between material and sociocultural aspects of rural poverty, with community belonging and attachment to landscape appearing more significant than material hardship and social exclusion within poor people’s narratives of their everyday lives. Community belonging is also bound up with particular moral discourses of welfare and rurality that act to perpetuate situations of material poverty within rural places
