Leader of Barnsley Council, Cllr Sir Steve Houghton CBE, said: "We know that a lot of people are really concerned about their finances at the moment. We set up the More Mon£y In Your Pocket webpage earlier this year, providing a whole host of information on getting help with the rising cost of living. On the page you can find information and advice about free or discounted support from many other websites, so you can find out how you could save money or get help in a range of areas.
As a council we're doing what we can to maximise the impact of help we can provide and help you to get the financial support that you need. The More Mon£y In Your Pocket page is a fantastic resource to take a look at if you need support, or to direct people you know to if they need help. We're updating the page regularly with new support, from both nationwide and local services, like the Household Support Fund and Grants which have just launched and can be found under the 'Household support grants and other support' section of the page. Keep an eye on the page and on our social media pages to hear about new services and support when they become available."
