Devon County Council’s special bulletin: Cost of living

Are you struggling with the cost of living? This bulletin (see link at the end of this paragraph) provides helpful advice for people in Devon who are struggling to meet the rising costs of living, for example the Household Support Fund which runs until September 2022; how to contact Citizens Advice if you’re worried about bills or debt; how to check eligibility for free school meals and support with meals during the school holidays, plus the Holiday Activities and Food programme during the summer holidays for 5 – 16 year olds. There’s also information about the Healthy Start Scheme for women who are more than ten weeks pregnant or have a child under four years old and receive certain benefits. Also, you can see if you are eligible for free energy efficiency improvements to your home if you have a household income of less than £30,000 a year – grants are also available for tenants of rented properties.  Read all about it here: BULLETIN LINK
