Cost of living crisis is pushing worried parents to the edge with 2 in 3 concerned about paying for essentials.
Did you know....
- Around 9 in 10 (87%) adults reported an increase in their cost of living over the previous month in March 2022 (16 to 27 March 2022), an increase of 25 percentage points compared with around 6 in 10 (62%) adults in November 2021 (3 to 14 November 2021).
- Nearly a quarter (23%) of adults reported that it was very difficult or difficult to pay their usual household bills in the last month, compared with a year ago, in March 2022 (16 to 27 March 2022); an increase from 17% in November 2021 (3 to 14 November 2021).
- Focusing on the latest period, among those who pay energy bills, around 4 in 10 (43%) reported that it was very or somewhat difficult to afford their energy bills in March 2022 (16 to 27 March 2022).
As a result, APF has dedicated this page to directing parents to numerous website which may go a small way in helping them to address these matters.
This includes sites to FIND EMPLOYMENT, AFFORDABLE CHILDCARE, UNDERSTADNING CHILDCARE AND TAX, AND WAYS TO SAVE ON YOUR ENERGY BILLS.
