Church and Society Commission
Responding to the cost of living crisis
Sources of support for families and individuals facing rising inflation and pressures from the cost of living are listed in a new briefing document provided by the Church and Society Commission. This includes key contacts for support and advice from public services and Christian charities working to respond to need, in both jurisdictions, at this time.
The Commission is asking parishes to take a pro–active approach by:
- encouraging anyone to ask for help when they sense that they are in need;
- being more aware of neighbours who may be struggling with finances;
- knowledge of and supporting local foodbanks; and
- an awareness of the impact of these pressures on family relationships.
The resource is available in Word and PDF document formats at this link and can be shared with anyone who may find it helpful.
