Cost of Living
The UK cost-of-living crisis is affecting people across the UK. Rising inflation, in particular for key commodities (such as energy, food and fuel), is pushing households into poverty and financial hardship, including those in employment. It is also stretching the community organisations that help these households to breaking point.
Further price rises on energy bills in the winter will make this situation even more challenging for those trying to make ends meet, with household bills expected to remain high until at least 2024.
