Cost of Living Crisis: Information and Resources
There is lots of helpful guidance for anyone struggling with the current cost of living crisis. There are
some changes coming to energy support in the next
few months: it is not clear who may find themselves
in further difficulties.
Local authorities are gathering information together
on benefits, energy and food support and other ways
that help can be found: churches can share this with
members or anyone who approaches for help.
Please access the local authority website for local
information in the area where you live. For the
whole of Scotland there is information at:
All Scotland: https://costofliving.campaign.gov.scot/
Various projects and other initiatives are taking place
in churches in the Diocese. These include:
Warm Spaces/Cosy Spaces: Maps
Many churches are offering warm spaces this winter
as part of various Council–led initiatives. Look for
info on social media and on Council resource pages.
There is a Dundee City Map here: https://
And a national ‘warm spaces’ map that any church
can register with is here: https://warmspaces.org/
