Cost of living support

As we head into winter and as the cost of living crisis continues to deepen. We wanted to take this opportunity to share more information out on provisions being made to help families across Havering by the borough.

Havering Council has created a one-stop-shop for all of the support that may be out there for residents this winter and beyond, all in one handy place on their website. Havering Council is working alongside voluntary, community and local organisations, and businesses to set up a network of Warm Spaces across the borough this winter.

The website contains links to the Havering Helps assistance scheme, council tax support, debt management services, energy grants, food banks and community hubs, as well as online benefits calculators so families can be sure they’re receiving all the support they are entitled to.

Havering Council will also publish details of any new support schemes, both local and national, in the Living in Havering email bulletin.

This information will be updated regularly as we receive more information and offers to support the cost of living crisis.
