Cost of living

Pink background with the words Cost of Living Help in Plymouth

We know that the rising cost of living is a real worry for hard-working and struggling households in Plymouth and across the country as a whole. We have created our cost of living hub to make it as easy as possible to find help with rising bills and costs. 

Here you will find signposts to the help that’s on offer - from financial support including information about benefits or help with budgeting, to where to go to get help with gas and electricity bills.  

Our hub also includes information on help with Council Tax, housing costs and support with food costs, as well as how to contact voluntary organisations working across the city. 

Remember - if you are struggling, you are not alone and there is no shame in asking for help. Everyone needs a little bit of extra support at some point in their lives. 

The Council has launched a new, city-wide Cost of Living Plan which outlines how residents will be supported throughout the crisis.
