Make sure you get the financial support you're entitled to

We’re all being affected by the biggest cost of living crisis seen in years. Higher food and energy prices mean millions across the UK are struggling with daily living cost pressures and the impact it has on their wellbeing. 

Each year many benefits and other forms of support go unclaimed, so together with local organisations and community partners we’ve produced a Help during the cost of living crisis leaflet about the help available to boost the income of those affected and ease some of these pressures. Check the full eligibility criteria before applying.

Don’t assume you’re receiving everything you’re entitled to

If you’re worried about money or heating your home, don’t assume you’re receiving everything you’re entitled to. As personal circumstances and what’s available can change it’s always worth checking. If you’re struggling or in doubt get in touch - we’re all here to help.

You can also check what you’re entitled to using the free independent online benefits calculator:
