Ease the Squeeze

East Suffolk Council are organising a Financial Roadshow throughout September, October and November 2022. There will be several events across many locations in Suffolk, allowing residents the opportunity to attend and get support and advice through the cost of living crisis. The roadshows will host a range of organisations which could include topics such as increasing fuel costs, access to essential supplies (including food), dealing with debt, benefits advice, money saving tips, and general cost of living concerns and financial support.

The table to the right includes some of the events which may be of interest to Peninsula Practice patients, however, all events are open to all members of the public, and other events are taking place in other Suffolk locations.
