Emma Hardy MP to host online cost of living advice and information event

With the cost of living rising for everyone, Emma Hardy MP is putting on a cost of living online event on Thursday 26 January at 6:30pm. The webinar will be on Zoom and streamed live on Facebook.

The webinar will have four panellists who can each offer advice on how to save money, where to get support and what campaigns are going on to tackle increased costs.

There are confirmed panellists from Hull and East Riding Citizens Advice, Yorkshire Building Society, Fair By Design and Trussell Trust.

There will be a Q&A running throughout the event, giving watchers the opportunity to participate and ask specific questions to the panel.

Focussing on energy, housing, food and essential goods and the Poverty Premium campaign, it’s hoped that the event will ensure those who are unsure what support is out there and how to access it, will get the vital information they need.

Emma will be running monthly webinars on topics her constituents contact her about.

Emma Hardy MP said:

“From speaking to constituents, I’ve seen first hand how to cost of living crisis is affecting people in Hull West and Hessle. We have record numbers using foodbanks, warm banks are popping up across Hull and East Riding and people are becoming increasingly concerned about rent and mortgage payments.

“People are coming to me unsure of exactly what help is out there, if they’re entitled to it and if they are entitled to it, how to access it. That’s why I’ve decided to put on this online event so people watching can have their questions answered in one place.”
