Cost of living

Resources to help with the rising cost of bills and essentials.

What is the cost of living?

The cost of living is the amount of money needed to cover basic expenses such as housing, food, taxes, and healthcare in a certain place and time period. In our recent health and wellbeing survey, we found that 1 in 5 people are struggling to meet the rising cost of living such as energy bills, petrol & food.  

With this in mind, we’ve pulled together some tips, advice and tools to help you cut costs at home and save your hard-earned cash. Even if you're feeling financially OK at the moment, it pays to start planning ahead in case money becomes an issue in the future.
