Mark Jenkinson MP to host a number of Cost of Living drop in sessions.
The drop-ins are an opportunity for people to discuss personal issues including utility bills and fuel prices, pension credit and housing.
Mark Jenkinson said: “I understand anxiety over rising prices. I want to assure you that the Government will continue to listen and to ensure that the policies in place do help those who need it most.
“These drop-ins are also an opportunity to discuss your own particular financial pressures – and hopefully to help them find ways to manage them.
“I don’t need to tell people that these are challenging times, but I want my constituents to know that I am here for them. It may be that some people or not claiming all the financial aid to which they are entitled; and others may be struggling to keep up with rental payments.
“I cannot make problems associated with the cost of living disappear – this is a complex problem. However, I am eager to listen and to help wherever I can – and to raise constructive suggestions with the ministers who help shape policy.”
The Government has already put a range of measures put in place, including the new three-part plan to help households with their energy bills during this challenging period.
The latest help follows the unprecedented package of support for businesses and individuals during Coronavirus, including the furlough scheme.
The drop-ins are due to be held on
- Monday 25th July at the Silloth Community Centre
- Tuesday 26th July at the Cockermouth Christian Centre
- Thursday 28th July at Moorclose Community Centre
- Friday 29th July at the Oval Centre, Salterbeck.
Each session will be between 9.30 am and 2.30pm.
