Supporting Yaxley & Farcet during the Cost of Living Crisis
The UK cost of living crisis is an ongoing event starting in 2021, in which prices for many essential goods in the United Kingdom began increasing faster than household incomes, resulting in a fall in real incomes. This is caused in part by a rise in inflation in the UK, in addition to the economic impact of global issues including the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine and COVID-19 pandemic. The UK’s cost of living is the most affected of advanced economies. While all in the UK are affected by rising prices, it most substantially affects low-income persons.
The Financial Times reported in May 2022 that the crisis caused UK consumer confidence to fall to its lowest level since 1974.
A 2022 survey by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) revealed that 77% of UK adults reported feeling worried about the rising cost of living
