Cost of Living Crisis and the need for advice
Record numbers of people are turning to Citizens Advice for help as we face the cost-of-living crisis together.
Our volunteers and advisers are working flat out, answering as many calls and seeing as many people who have urgent and complex problems as we can.
We know that many people are struggling to get through to us, as we try to meet lots of demand for urgent advice.
We’re working with partners to help us meet more demand. We know there’s still a long way to go to get through this challenging time, but with continued support, we’ll be able to help many more of the people who urgently need advice.
You can also call us directly and speak to one of our Volunteer Advisers. All calls are free.
