Message from John Hooton on cost of living support
In Barnet we’re dealing with a cost of living crisis not seen for a generation or more. The crisis will affect many of us in numerous ways.
We’re focusing on those already feeling the effects of this crisis. We’re doing so via a number of immediate responses including a residents’ support fund of £2million.
We’ll support residents with:
- accessing eligible benefits and pensions credits
- direct financial support
- accessing BOOST to help people secure jobs
We’re also providing additional funding to the voluntary, community and faith sector to enable community-led initiatives such as warm spaces and warm clothes banks.
