Do you need Support with the Cost of Living?

Posted on: 28 Mar 2023

We’re all being affected by rises in energy bills, food and petrol which is making it hard for some people to make ends meet.

Derbyshire County Council has put together lots of information and advice, that is available locally, designed to ensure that you're getting all the help that you are entitled to.

There’s lots of support available to you – everything from how to claim free school meals to how to check if you are eligible for benefits and moneysaving tips.
