With the cost of food, rent, utilities and other household bills still rising, many of us are feeling the pinch. A recent YouGov poll commissioned by the Greater London Authority (GLA) revealed that one in five Londoners (21%) are struggling financially and that many, especially social renters, are using less water, energy or fuel to keep their costs down. 

“I’m hugely concerned about the impact that winter will have on Londoners who are already struggling due to the ongoing cost of living crisis.” - Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London
