Somerset County Council backs new Cost-of-Living Crisis Appeal

Somerset County Council has welcomed the launch of Somerset Community Foundation’s Somerset Cost-of-Living Crisis Appeal.

The Council has contributed an initial £50,000 donation to support the launch of the appeal. The Cost-of-Living Crisis Appeal is an urgent call for donations which will be used to help fund local charities supporting local people living in poverty through the cost-of-living crisis.

Leader of Somerset County Council, Councillor Bill Revans said: “Just as Somerset Community Foundation stepped up to support our communities during Covid, it is great to see it doing the same for the cost-of-living crisis that will similarly hit thousands of Somerset families over the coming months.

“It is only right that the county council is working in partnership with the Foundation and supporting their appeal. Somerset is a county of close communities and I hope those residents who are able will support the appeal and support their neighbours.”

Donations will fund crucial local work such as debt advice organisations, food banks, mental health support, help for people with disabilities or older people, and homelessness organisations.
