cost of living crisis

The cost-of-living crisis is quite rightly the most pressing concern right now for families, businesses, and the Voluntary Community Sector (VCS). 

VAC is particularly concerned about the additional pressures of a cold winter and is committed to supporting the sector to prepare for an anticipated increase in demand of community services.  

On this page we are collating resources and information to help community groups and residents in Camden navigate through the crisis. Check out the links below or get in touch with us to find out how we can support you.
