Help with the Cost of Living
The cost of living is rising steeply. Energy, food and bills are all increasing, and many of us are struggling to keep up. These pages contain information with help that may be available to you – whether it’s support with debt, help to cover your bills, or access to jobs advice.
If you can’t find what you’re looking for, please get in touch. You can call the Community Action reception on 01332 346266 between 9:30 - 16:00 Monday - Friday. Or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
For Deaf people and Hard of Hearing people we have a textphone - 07490 341 584 (if you leave a message, we will endeavour to get back to you on the same day), and a BSL Signing Service.
