Cost of living hub

Cost of living hub banner

The rising costs of fuel, food and other essentials are combining with existing disadvantage and vulnerability within our communities to put many households at greater risk of both immediate hardship and reduced opportunity and wellbeing.

Councils and local partners have delivered remarkable services and support and will continue to do what they can to protect people against higher costs, targeting help at those facing the most complex challenges.

This hub has been designed to share best practice and help councils to support their residents with the rise in the cost of living. Case studies and resources can be found for each topic area in the pages below.

We will be updating the hub on a regular basis. If you would like your council's work featured please emailĀ welfare@local.gov.uk.

You can also sign up to receive our cost of living bulletin, which contains the latest news and updates.
