Many of us are struggling with the rising costs of fuel and food and the cost of living generally. To help, we are launching a free Budgeting and Benefits Calculator:
- The budgeting tool can help you to review your spending and see where you may be able to make savings.
- The Benefits Calculator can help you to check if you have any entitlement to benefit support depending on your circumstances and where to claim.
- You can add scenarios. For example, you may be thinking about going back to work, or increasing your hours – this tool can help you see the impact on your income and whether you would be better off in work. Or if you are planning on having a child, you can see what effect this addition to the family might have on your income and what support would be available to you.
There is also the option at the end of the process to email our Tenancy Sustainment Team for further support with any applications and/or advice regarding budgeting and benefits.
*Calculations should be treated as a helpful estimate, as it will only be as accurate as the information entered.
