Cost of Living Crisis

The UK’s poorest families will see the amount of spare cash at their disposal drop by a fifth this year with £850 less to spend on non-essentials as shop prices hit a decade high. That is roughly two months’ net income for a young couple – they simply do not have that flex in their budget and we will see increasingly start choices being made about the most basic of living requirements.

We know that we will see increasing stress entering the homes of local children – they will be faced with hunger, their parents will be suffering from mental health issues and they will suffer as a result.

From April 2022 there has been a huge increase in the cost of living and this will only become worse in September when energy prices will surge again just in time for the colder weather.

We need your help to support local families with their household budgets, to ensure that children are fed, warm and safe.

Please give what you can to help us support them.
