How to Help Those Who Can’t Afford Monthly Bills or Food

The financial impact of COVID-19 has been devastating, causing millions to seek financial emergency help for rent, food and other critical expenses.

Every day, people across the country are forced to make the difficult choice between paying rent and having running water, or buying food for the family and keeping the lights on. These sacrifices are more common than you’d think — 30% of children are in poverty, and the UK’s largest food bank network the The Trussell Trust believes extreme poverty is set to double in the UK due to the impact of the pandemic.

For many, affording monthly expenses is a constant challenge. If you want to help a friend, family or neighbour, you can start a fundraiser.
