As we move into the winter months, with inflation still high and the cost of energy, food, housing and other essentials continuing to cause severe financial stress for millions of our fellow citizens, the city of Birmingham is holding a Cost of Living Week from 6-10 November.

The aim of the week is to spotlight some of the many programmes being provided by community and voluntary organisations in the city and to raise awareness of the support that is available. It will also encourage private businesses to contribute to this work and celebrate those that are already doing so.
