ACOSS’ Cost of Living survey
Around the country we’re seeing increases in the cost of everything from petrol to gas and electricity. ACOSS knows that people on income support are being hit hardest by these price increases, but those stories aren’t getting nearly enough media coverage.
That’s why it has created a ‘cost of living’ survey to capture data on the experiences of people on income support. People are being forced to make impossible decisions between keeping their heating on or buying groceries – and price increases are only set to make life harder.
These stories need to be heard and should be at the centre of the conversation about measures to ease the cost-of-living crisis.
