Part of the Society matters LIVE event series

The cost of living crisis is having a serious impact on people’s financial wellbeing. Recent budget announcements provide some support, including maintaining the value of benefits in real terms, but this is only the tip of the iceberg and many benefits have not kept pace with inflation in previous years. Many UK citizens now face real challenges of navigating cost pressures across multiple fronts. The scale of the crisis necessitates radical solutions that take account of real life experiences.

In this highly interactive and participative session, we will bring together insights from expert knowledge with experts by experience (i.e. you as the audience) to identify, develop and evaluate possible solutions.

Participants at the event will be able to contribute to this collaborative ‘research in action’. A briefing will be given at the beginning to outline how the session will work and the methods being used. All materials needed to participate will be provided. We encourage anyone interested in this topic to come along and share their perspective and ideas.
