In 2022, the cost of living is of major concern for many. Rising prices in food, fuel and transport are forcing people to make hard choices over how they spend their money. The least well-off are the worst affected, with those choices being narrowed to heating or eating, or skipping meals to feed their children.
How did we get to this point? And what can churches do in response? We’re collecting our resources on the cost of living crisis on this page.
