Cost of living support

We are officially in a national cost of living emergency. The government has already intervened directly in the energy markets to fix costs for homes and businesses. But with the cost of everything going up and wages stagnating, we recognise we need to do more to help our staff, service users and carers. On this page below you'll find the information support pack for our staff as well as some useful links to other sources of information for local residents.

Support pack for staff

We’ve created an information pack to bring together relevant, useful and accessible information into one place for staff. It includes some support offers we provide directly, and some we’re recommending you take advantage of if you can.

Download the latest version of the pack. 

Last updated: 13 September 2022. Please note this pack will be regularly updated as new schemes are introduced or information changes.
