Cost of Living Support


The cost of living is rising and this could have a big impact on all aspects of your finances including energy bills, the cost of your weekly shop and your take home pay.

We’ve put together lots of information and advice, designed to ensure that you are getting all the help you are entitled to.

From advice around welfare and benefits to support for families, people feeling the effects of isolation or people with long term health conditions and carers.

We’ve also got advice on how to become more energy efficient, reduce food waste, composting and information about local food support projects.
