A DROP-IN event to help with the impact of the cost-of-living crisis is taking place in St Helens tomorrow.

The support session will offer free, confidential, and impartial advice and support for people in the borough to help deal with financial pressures.

Local partners have come together to organise the event to offer support with issues including managing bills and outgoings, debt, and keeping warm for less.

The event follows the announcement that millions of households are eligible for a new £200 cost of living payment which will help them with their energy bills.
