Cost of Living
This page is a hub for data relevant to the cost of living crisis in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. If you have concerns or need help with your own cost of living please click on the following link Support with the cost of living – Cambridgeshire County Council
The cost of living has risen significantly in the past year and is projected to rise even further. The cost of energy, food, fuel have all risen faster than incomes have risen, meaning that people across the country are finding it harder to afford necessities. This will result in people cutting back on their expenditure and for many it will mean serious hardship and worry.
This section is dynamic and will change as more data is made available. It is still in development but aims to bring together some key data sources that relate to the crises and give an indication of what is happening both locally and nationally.
