Business employees urged to tap into charity support if they need help

A charity which provides vital support to individuals and families is urging employees from businesses across the area to contact them if they need any help or advice as the cost of living crisis continues to impact on so many people.

The team at Peterlee-based East Durham Trust provides a range of services to help those most impacted by rising energy, food and fuel costs. However, they are keen to dispel the myth that they are only there to help people who are out of work.

Lindsey Wood from East Durham Trust said: “I think people have this idea that we’re only there to help people on benefits who are out of work and that just isn’t the case. We know there are so many individuals and families that are struggling at the moment – many of whom are working families.

“Rising energy costs are affecting every single one of us and that, coupled with the high costs of fuel, food and clothing, means more and more people are struggling to pay their bills. “For that reason were really keen to reach out to the employers across the area to say to them to let their employees know we’re here to help. “It doesn’t matter how much they’re earning, if they’re struggling and want advice on how to better manage their money, come and see us.”
