Cost of living

Costs are rising but help is out there

The cost of living is rising and this could have a big impact on all aspects of your finances including energy bills, the cost of your weekly shop and your take home pay.

We've put together lots of information and advice, designed to ensure that you're getting all the help that you are entitled to. You can also sign up to get the latest advice and information by email.

The amount of money that the members' Community Leadership Scheme allocates to each of our 64 county councillors annually has been doubled.

From advice around welfare rights and benefits, to support for families, people with long-term health conditions and carers. We've also got advice on how to become more energy efficient, reduce food waste and information about local food support projects.

It's worth remembering that all our libraries across the county offer warm and welcoming spaces for everybody, and you don't need to be library member to visit our libraries. You can also find what venues in Derbyshire are offering warm spaces.

The government has also launched its cost of Living campaign giving information about the financial support package that is rolling out nationally, including help with bills and information about cost of living payments in 2023/24. If you are a business looking for help with energy bills you can find out more about what you are eligible to receive. The government has outlined plans to help cut energy bills for businesses.
