As the cost of living increases nationally, Cornwall Council has pulled together information about a wide range of help and support available to residents.
The ‘I’m worried about money’ webpage on the Council’s website includes information and links to support provided through the authority and its partner organisations.
This spans everything from debt advice and job-seeking to emergency food provision, council tax discounts and crisis grants for people who suddenly find themselves struggling. This can all be accessed at cornwall.gov.uk/moneyworries
