Cost of Living Crisis
Cost of Living Crisis

We have been failed at every corner by this Conservative Government. Whilst they handed out billions in contracts to their mates during the pandemic, they are now, in their time of need, leaving the poorest in society with little to no support.

Food and energy costs are skyrocketing, rents across the borough spiral, and all whilst wages stagnate. I have been contacted by many households struggling, with some now facing the choice between heating and eating.

I have set up this page to list different support available both locally and nationally to help those in need of support and advice, whether it be debt advice or housing support. Please also sign up below to be kept up to date with developments and campaigns.
