Cost of living support

Are you worried about the rising cost of energy bills, food and transport?

You are not alone; the cost of living crisis is affecting many of us.

You may want help accessing grants, support getting all the benefits you are entitled to, or simply want to know more about the government's recent support measures.

Whatever your worries may be, we have put together some helpful information in the links below.

If you are experiencing immediate problems, phone 0121 303 1116. Our opening hours are Monday to Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm.

The Erdington and Northfield Advice Centres will extend their opening hours for residents who want to talk to someone in person about cost of living issues. The centres will be open to visitors until 7:00pm on Tuesdays and 10:00am to 1:00pm on Saturdays.

In addition to this, the Erdington and Northfield Advice Centres (under the new Homes and Money Service) are trialling sending out text and email messaging in order to signpost citizens to financial support. You may therefore receive a text message from the following mobile number 074456. This is not spam.
