Are you struggling with the cost of living?
Curb the Cost of Living is an event run by the council for residents to come and make sure they are claiming all the help they are entitled to. The event will run on Friday, June 23, 12 – 3pm, at The Ealing Project, on Ealing Broadway, 1 High Street, W5 5DB
Find out what is available
Residents are encouraged to attend and speak to advisors from the council and local organisations to find out what help is out there, and make sure they are receiving all the support they need. Council staff will be on hand from children’s services with information on summer activities and the Holiday Activity and Food (HAF) programme, local welfare assistance and community hubs, as well as community organisations such as Nucleus who can help with financial management and debt issues, and AGE UK, with specific support for older people.
Talk to us
Residents are invited to drop-in any time between 12 – 3pm next Friday, where they can speak directly to these services, charities and organisations. Councillor Steve Donnelly, cabinet member for inclusive economy said: “This is an opportunity to talk to someone directly, find out what is available, discuss any concerns, and come up with a solution together
“Find out what is on offer, how the community hubs can help, what support is available for children and families and activities during the summer holidays, help with finances, ways to save money on energy in the home, and even employment and skills advice.”
Free mobile phone data
We have 100 mobile data SIM cards to give away at the event to anyone over 18 who may be struggling with the cost of mobile phone bills.
Win a pair of cinema tickets
On the day there will also be a feedback survey and all completed forms will be part of a draw, and ten lucky winners will win a pair of free cinema tickets, kindly donated by The Ealing Project.
