Information for parents on help with the cost of living

Buckinghamshire Council has a Helping Hand team which is available to help individuals or families in need, those on low incomes and those who are experiencing a financial emergency or crisis.

‘Welcoming Spaces’

Buckinghamshire Council will be joining forces with other organisations across Buckinghamshire to create a network of welcoming spaces this winter, to assist when the weather turns colder.

Starting with libraries, these locations will provide a warm, welcoming and supportive space for anyone who needs it. Anyone who comes in from the cold will be welcomed and will be guaranteed respect, dignity and warmth; the aim is to offer a friendly ear and overall, to create places that help people save on their heating bills and that also offer advice and support.
