Cost of Living

With significant rise in the cost of living we know that some households will be struggling financially, emotionally or because they need practical advice and help. Here is some key information on what support is available and how to access it. As new schemes, advice and support becomes available this page will be kept updated.

LGA Peer Challenge

In October 2022, the Partnership Councils invited the Local Government Association to undertake a Peer Review of the Partnership and its progress in its first year of formation.

Peers from Local Government and the Civil Service came to the sub-region and met with Councillors, Officers and partner organisations as part of their fact finding.  They also reviewed a detailed evidence base.

The Report from the Peers is available to view at the bottom of this page alongside an action plan we intend to deliver.

We are grateful to all the Peers who took the time to support our Review; and our Councillors, Officers and partners who also fed their views into the process.
