Cost of living support

We know times are hard right now. On this page you will find links to support and advice that is new, that is already available from us, and that is available from a range of other agencies too, to support you with the cost of living.

New: Cost of Living Winter Special. In addition to the below, you can also check out this seasonal advice this winter.

Even if you don't claim any benefits you may be entitled to support you weren’t aware of, and not just monetary support, but good advice from legitimate sources you can trust.

You can also get more help from the Government's Help for Households campaign website.

Looking for a warm space?

Many local organisations that have opened free, warm, welcoming spaces for the public over this winter have registered the details of their offer on the  Warm Welcome Network so that anyone can search for local warm spaces in their area.  All 21 libraries in the county are registered as a warm space.  There is lots going on at libraries which offer free use of computers, free Wi-Fi, free events for all ages and much more. Additional information from Worcestershire County Council can be found here
