The Cost of Living Podcast

Tuesday, 20 June 2023 - 35 seconds


If you live on the Isle of Wight and need support with the cost of living, the Isle of Wight Council have created an online resource that includes useful information from a whole range of public, voluntary, charity, government and business organisations which have been reaching out to support households.

You can access the cost-of-living help pages by clicking the following link: www.iow.gov.uk/costofliving 

The help pages have been divided into sections for ease of access to information. Those sections are:

Benefits & Government Support — information about government support including a benefits calculator
Money Worries — where to get help if you are worried about money;
Support with Energy Bills — for people who are struggling to pay utilities and other household expenses;
Food — information on community pantries, food banks and access to healthy food;
Health and Wellbeing — mental health support and advice on keeping healthy.

Additionally why not listen to our short commercial publicising the support available
