I’m constantly living in fear of the next bill rise or rise in food and petrol bill. Currently my family is living hand to mouth.

If prices keep going up I would be in danger of losing my beautiful home that I have worked so hard for.

Having to skip lunch and only having two meals a day. Put extra layers on as the electricity bills have gone up too much.

Many of my colleagues have to have a second job to cover their bills, this is just wrong.

Let’s rise together to end the Cost of Living crisis.
