Invitation to cost of living forum

Citizens Advice Mid Suffolk want to hear from organisations or individuals who know about how the cost of living crisis is affecting people in your community.  What kind of problems are people coming to you with?  Where are the gaps?

We are therefore inviting people to come to a cost of living forum on 24th February 2023.  Let’s build up a picture of what problems are coming up locally, and then we can start to look at how to tackle them. 

The forum will be held on Zoom at 10am.  Citizens Advice Mid Suffolk will give an update on the cost of living to set the scene.  Then we will break into smaller groups to talk about key themes.  The groups will share what they think the main challenges are, what is working well and what gaps there are.  It’s an opportunity to build partnerships and to share thinking about how to tackle the issues we have identified through a next steps process.

At Citizens Advice Mid Suffolk, we only have one view of how the cost of living crisis is affecting people.  We use the evidence we have to look for ways to improve things for people.  If we don’t know how the cost of living crisis is affecting people in your community with then there’s a risk they might be overlooked when we discuss further work to help people.

If you would like to attend, please email  If you still want to participate but can’t attend on that day then feel free to email Citizens Advice Mid Suffolk your views so that they can be shared within the process.

Kind Regards,

Simon Clifton
