As winter approaches, many households are already struggling with high living costs. Many are finding it hard to afford the essentials, with renters, people with disabilities, families with children under 18, and those reliant on benefits hit the hardest.
This month I held my fifth cost of living networking event. A huge thank you to all the organisations and community groups that attended and especially the networks speakers from Pontypridd Foodbank, Riverside Advice and Manage Money Wales & The Community Sharing Shop.
I always leave these events so inspired by the amazing work being done by so many organisations and individuals in our communities, but also angry at the lack of political will and action to improve people’s lives. I am determined to keep fighting for justice for all.
The next event will take place in February, so if you are interested in learning more, please get in touch or If you live in South Wales Central and require support on this issue or any other, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me via email at [email protected] or by calling my office on 01443 853214. I am always happy to help, so please don’t suffer alone.
