Residents across Kirklees are feeling the impact of the increase in the cost of living.

Our brand-new ‘Cost of Living Support’ resource provides residents with information on how to access council support to help manage increased living costs. Printed booklets and a dedicated web page have been created that break down the support available into the three categories of, Food, Energy, and Money.

You can find the ‘Cost of Living Support’ information at www.kirklees.gov.uk/cost-of-living

Our web pages can now be translated into many different languages at the click of a button. Simply click on ‘select language’ at the top of the page.

Cllr Paul Davies, Cabinet Member for Corporate Services, said:

“We know that our towns and villages across Kirklees are unique and that residents are feeling the impact of increased household costs in different ways. We want to help our residents who are, or will be, impacted by the rise in everyday costs.

“Here in Kirklees, we have many brilliant community and third sector organisations offering localised support. Whilst we cannot include all these organisations in the booklet and on the web page, we recognise the vital support they offer our communities.

“We will continue to work alongside them to build on our resources and ensure residents are directed to the support they need to help maximise household income and navigate through the next year and beyond.

“Over the next 12 months we will be working together to better understand the seasonal challenges we will encounter. The summer holidays, back to school preparations, winter conditions, the cost of the Christmas holidays together with the impact of increases in energy costs and rising inflation, are all going to have a significant financial implication on residents.

“Together we will all play our part in helping Kirklees residents to access the support they need.”
