Cost of Living Help from Shropshire Council

Increases in the cost of food, fuel and utilities is affecting many households 

in Shropshire and we know that it is a worrying time for everyone.

To help, we have brought together a number of useful links, tips and 

pointers on where and how people can find help across the county 


This will help people see the range of services we and our partner 

organisations have on offer. This includes a benefits calculator so that 

people can check whether they’re getting the benefits they’re entitled to, 

advice about energy bills and reducing energy costs from the Marches 

Energy Agency, as well as information about how to manage debt from 

Citizens Advice.

We also recently announced that every household in council tax bands

A to D will receive £150 rebate towards rising energy costs, to be paid

from April 2022.

To find out more about this, please have a look on our website 

(Energy bills rebate and newsroom (Direct debit energy rebate). 

We hope that you find our webpage helpful, and we will of course

continue to add to this as more help becomes available.
