We’re calling a forum on the cost of living

Posted: 16th January 2023

At Citizens Advice Mid Suffolk, we only have one view of how the cost of living crisis is affecting people.  We are inviting other stakeholders to a cost of living forum for their area.  This will help us all to understand what problems are coming up locally.  We want to build up a picture of what the issues are, what is working well and where the gaps are.  We can use this evidence to look for ways to improve the support that’s available.

Any organisation or individual that is working with people in Mid Suffolk is invited to join a forum.

  • The forum for Stowmarket and Needham Market is on 18th January 2023
  • The forum for rural areas of Mid Suffolk is on 24th February 2023

We will be putting together a report after the forum with a summary of results.  The forum is the first step towards bringing organisations together.  We expect partnerships to be forged between the people attending. We see this as the start of a conversation about what needs to be in place for people in  Mid Suffolk.

To find out more or to join the forum for your area please email [email protected]
