The cost of living crisis is still affecting many people across the Liverpool City Region and the whole of the UK. Despite a fall in inflation and the energy price cap, many are turning to extra support to help pay their bills.
Inflation dropped to 7.9% in July, the lowest it’s been since 2022. The energy price cap will drop to £1923 on October 1st. However, energy bills and the cost of food are still expected to be high leaving many in our communities struggling to make ends meet.
This means people will still be relying on the next Cost of Living payment this autumn.
Cost of Living payment Autumn 2023 – when is it due?
The next cost of living payment will be on 31st October and 19th November. Those who are eligible will be automatically transferred £300 into their chosen bank account and it will not affect any other benefits or payments.
