Essex County Council is looking at how to improve support for working families who are just about managing and are feeling the pressures of juggling work and home life on a limited budget.

One of these ideas is to help families save money on household costs. Household costs includes things like utility bills, TV/broadband, food shopping, clothing, travel and other costs related to the home and family.
