Cost of living crisis: Local help available

The darker and colder nights are closing in as winter approaches. The cost of living crisis is already affecting many households with relentless increases in prices in all aspects of our daily lives.

Many people will be struggling as the pressure piles on and this can feel like a lonely time. You may be worrying more than usual, or having thoughts or feelings that are difficult to cope with.

But reaching out, whatever it is you need support with, might help you feel better. 

We have put together a list (below) of support services, organisations, charities, community groups and local volunteers who are all available to help in whatever way you may need.
