Cost of living support

According to the Office for National Statistics, 91% of adults in Great Britain reported an increase in their cost of living in October-November 2022.

Low-income households spend a larger proportion than average on energy and food, so are more affected by price increases. Food bank charities are reporting an increase in demand: the Trussell Trust reported that in April-September 2022, they provided almost 1.3 million emergency food parcels, a third more than in the same period in 2021 and 50% more than pre-pandemic levels.
