How can the ECC help working families save money on household costs

Posted on: July 23, 2021

(In order to complete this survey you must be 18+ and a parent/carer living within Essex).

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.

We know the pandemic has impacted on household finances for some, and we have already done research with families in Essex to better understand their experiences. We are now developing several ideas and initiatives which we think could be useful for working families.

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.

Take the survey here.
