We know people are worried about rising costs and may be struggling. We've put together this booklist which we hope you'll find helpful.
Essex County Council has a Helping you with the cost of living page to help you during this difficult time. It includes advice about support with money, debt and benefits, and help with energy, childcare and household costs.
West Essex Health and Care Partnership have put together a booklet on keeping costs down this winter.
Also, keep warm and connected through our Warm Welcomes initiative.
