Cost of living

We recognise that individuals and households continue to face pressures this year due to the continued high cost-of-living.  In response, this winter we will allocate £1.019 million of funding to a hardship scheme designed to support residents most in need of help. It is being used to boost existing programmes delivered by partner organisations to support:

  • children and young people (including those with special needs),
  • families and individuals who need emergency support,
  • older people, and
  • minority ethnic communities.  

These pages provide information on our services and details of other organisations in the city who may be able to provide support or advice. It doesn’t include details of every local neighbourhood support initiative, so please check with local community organisations for information on other support available in your area.
