Cost of Living Drop-In-Session:

Goodmayes Library, 76 Goodmayes Ln, Ilford IG3 9QB

30th March 2023

10:00am – 12:00pm

It’s a difficult time for everyone and people are struggling to cover their essential living costs. We’re all paying a lot for energy, food, and vital bills like rent.

Redbridge Council is holding a Cost-of-Living drop-in-session to provide advice and support to hard-pressed residents affected by increases in the cost of living.

We are working with our partners across the public and voluntary sector to support our residents, especially vulnerable people and those hit hardest.

Staff from the council, including Housing, Benefits and Work Redbridge will provide one-to-one information and advice on a range of topics, including:

  • Income maximisation
  • Improving financial resilience
  • Work, skills, and training courses
  • Support for families and children
  • General Cost of Living guidance and tips, including managing energy efficiency

Please note, for any applications under the Household Support Fund you will need to provide proof of address and income for ALL household members. We may be unable to proceed with an application without this information. If you have received a payment within the last 3 months you will not be eligible for another payment.

The Cost-of-Living drop-in-session will be held on Thursday, 30th March 2023 between 10:00am-12:00pm at Goodmayes Library, 76 Goodmayes Ln, Ilford IG3 9QB

This event is inclusive to all residents, including those who do not have recourse to public funds. Information, advice and support will be provided to everyone.
