Support in London during the cost of living crisis
London Plus has created a list of organisations, to signpost and match support for those affected by the rising cost of living. In particular, we are prioritising the inclusion of London-based organisations. This is a working document, and we will be updating it in real-time as we receive information.
To navigate its contents, please use the document outline pane on the left of the document. You may need to click on the icon for this to appear.
We also have a document containing examples of good practice, insights and innovative ideas across London, all of which are aimed at mitigating the impacts of the rising cost of living.Good Practice Document
The document below is a list of useful data resources relating to the rising cost of living. As the cost of living crisis continues to affect the lives or Londoners, the available data on the situation has steadily increased to the point where we feel it is necessary to compile it in one place.Data Document
Cost of Living Evidence Toolkit
This is a toolkit aimed at helping smaller organisations build an evidence based around the cost of living crisis. It can be used to support funding applications.
It has key data sources and explains how to collate your own insights and case studies.
This document was compiled by the cost of living task group, led by Selina Rodrigues of Community Barnet.Evidence and Insight Toolkit
