cost of living crisis support


Residents across Cheadle & Cheadle Hulme are set to face another spike in the cost of living as energy bills and inflation continue to rise. National Insurance increases will make life even harder for working families, pensioners and young people.
Earlier this year, the energy giant BP announced profits of £9.5bn whilst the average UK household is expected to see its electricity and gas bills rise by £693 this April. That’s an eye-watering 54% increase.
Speaking on BBC Radio 4s Today programme, the Liberal Democrat leader, Ed Davey, said: “It simply cannot be right these energy companies are making super profits while people are too scared to turn their radiators on and terrified there will be a cold snap.” The Government has ignored Ed Davey’s calls for a windfall tax on super profits to support families and pensioners.

  • £150 council tax rebate in April
    Having adjusted the energy price cap, the government says all of those in England living in properties in council tax bands A to D will receive a £150 rebate in April. This will not need to be repaid.
  • £200 energy credit loan in October
    All domestic electricity customers will receive a £200 credit on their energy bill in October 2022. The government will initially meet the cost of these payments, but you’ll have to pay them back.
