Get cost of living advice and support

Thursday, January 04, 2024

Your Money Matters advice events are coming to nine community venues across the district throughout January and February.

The events are being held to encourage residents to seek support on a range of issues relating to the Cost of Living.

They will be offering expert advice on money, benefits and debt, home energy and bills support and jobs and training opportunities.

“If you have concerns about the cost of living, from not being able to pay your energy bills to managing debt, please know you are not alone. Everyone is welcome to come along to one of these events where we can offer advice and a strong package of support.”
