Cost of living support and advice

Welcome to the Portsmouth City Council cost of living hub. Your guide to the help that’s available for Portsmouth residents.

We know times are tough for people in Portsmouth and many of you are feeling the squeeze. If you are struggling, there is a lot of support out there and we’re here to help. We’ve put all the information in easy-to-read sections so just tell us what you need or want, to find the support and advice that’s right for you.

If you prefer to speak to someone, or if you have a friend or relative who isn’t online, you can call our cost of living helpline on 023 9284 1047 and our friendly customer service team will be able to help you find the support you need. The helpline is available from 9am-5pm on weekdays (closes at 4.30pm on Fridays). Closed on Bank Holidays.

We now have a Cost of Living blog which will feature useful money saving tips and take a look at how you the resident, and the communities you live in are coping during these challenging times.
