Helping those most in need deal with the Cost of Living Crisis

Today it was confirmed that 7.2 million cost of living payments of £326 have been made to low-income families, as part of the government programme to help households with the cost of living. 

  • Ministers promised to help protect those on the lowest incomes from the global inflationary pressures caused by a range of international factors, and we are committed to delivering on this promise.
  • That is why over 7 million households have now received an automatic £326 payment to help with the cost of living, with the second half of the payment coming in the Autumn. Over 8 million of the most vulnerable households will receive £1,200 of direct support to help with bills over the winter. 
  • This payment will give vital support to families across the country as they manage the cost of living.
