We know our residents and local business owners are concerned about how the rising cost of living will affect them.
Financial advice and support is available from many places, but not always obvious, for those struggling to make ends meet.
According to a survey last month by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) a staggering 91% of adults have reported an increase in their living costs compared with a year ago.
We’ve put together some helpful advice and information on where to go to find extra advice and support.
