Help for people on low incomes

This week the government announced over 7 million cost of living payments had been made to low-income families in one week, as we continue to protect the most vulnerable during this difficult period. 

  • We understand families are struggling with rising prices, fuelled by Putin’s illegal invasion of Ukraine and the aftermath of the Covid pandemic – the worst economic shock to the global economy in 300 years. 
  • That is why we delivered over 7 million payments of £324 directly into the bank accounts of the most vulnerable households in just one week – and will make over a million more to those on tax credits later this month as part of our £1,200 cash support package for the poorest members of society. 
  • Today's Autumn Statement, will continue to prioritise helping the most vulnerable just as we did during Covid, as we make the tough decisions needed to drive down inflation and fix our public finances.
