Cost of living increases have had a significant impact on all areas of our lives. Due to the increased cost of living there are lots of reasons you might find yourself in need of advice, especially in the colder months.

But you aren’t alone and there is help available and organisations which can point you in the right direction and give you the advice you need.

Check the support you are entitled to

If you don’t have enough money to live on, you might be able to get help to afford essentials like bills and food. This includes the Household Support Fund and cost of living payments.

You should always find out if you are eligible for any benefits – you might be able claim even if you work, have savings, or own a home. Lots of people miss out on benefits they’re entitled to – so it’s worth checking what you can get.
