More than a third of UK adults will find it difficult or impossible to cope with an estimated £20.00 increase in their monthly outgoings, as the cost of living crisis continues to bite.
Polling for national Citizens Advice found that 37% of adults would struggle to find an extra £20.00, with 25% saying they would find it ‘somewhat difficult’, while 7% said it would be ‘very difficult’, and 4% ‘impossible’.
Citizens Advice Bassetlaw supported a record number of clients in December, helping them access emergency grants and referring them to food banks. The local charity is continuing to provide a Cost of Living telephone helpline and adviser to support local people with the rising cost of living.
If you need help to see if you can get any additional financial support, such as welfare benefits, grants or schemes then they can assist you. Support is also available in dealing with energy or other debts. Please leave your name and contact number on the Cost of Living helpline phone and one of the team will get back to you as soon as possible.
