We are aware that more and more families are struggling financially. Citizens Advice are also saying that almost half of the people they help are in a negative budget – they have more essential spending going out than coming in.
The government have recently announced measures to help with the cost of living – see their factsheet – https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/cost-of-living-support/cost-of-living-support-factsheet-26-may-2022
Frontline workers in Berkshire can refer low-income families they support for telephone advice on reducing their bills, and help with utility debt by emailing Helen on firstname.lastname@example.org
If you run a group for families with good numbers of low-income families attending, please contact Helen to arrange an advice session at your group.
