Cost of Living Support

We know how hard this winter is going to be for so many of the young people and families we work with. With rising prices for food, energy and fuel many people are feeling the pinch.

We were incredibly pleased to be awarded funding from Blackpool Council to provide a little extra support to our families during these incredibly challenging times.

Although we aren’t able to directly support rising energy costs we are hoping to help families offset this a little with vouchers for food and warm clothes, and in our first month share slow cookers and hot water bottles.

We will continue voucher support through December, January and February and we will continue to look for other support wherever we can.

We know it’s not going to get much easier so please do not struggle on your own, you can get in touch with us through our contact form, email, Facebook or just pop in. There is always a friendly face to talk to.
