Our cost of living service has been set up to provide support and information to people who are struggling to cope with rising costs or who are looking for advice about how they can manage their money more effectively.

We provide one to one support and group information sessions and also have a discrete fund for current service users needing support with essentials. 

See below for further details:


On the last Wednesday of each month the Cost of Living Service hosts a coffee morning takeover. These sessions aim to help service users with a range of themes related to the cost of living crisis such as; exercising for less, problem solving and budget management, free days out, gifting on a budget and much more!

*Please note sessions run between 10:30 and 12:30 at the Sheffield Mind Wellbeing Centre.
