Practical support on cost of living on offer from Portsmouth MP

By 16 January 2023No Comments

Portsmouth South MP, Stephen Morgan, will host a benefits drop-in event this week at his constituency office on Albert Road on Friday 20 January to provide practical advice and support constituents with the cost of living crisis. 

The MP has been taking a range of actions to help Portsmouth people struggling during the cost of living crisis, raising issues in Parliament, voting for measures to protect household budgets and liaising with local support agencies to share information.

With energy, fuel and food bills going up, Mr Morgan’s latest intervention is bringing together local groups including Portsmouth Citizen’s Advice, the Jobcentre, Advice Portsmouth and relevant teams at Portsmouth City Council to support constituents deal with the cost of living crisis.

During the event attendees will be able to:

  • receive advice on managing their benefit claims, or information around what support they may be entitled to;
  • share individual problems or financial concerns with Stephen’s casework team who may be able to help; and
  • share thoughts, concerns, and questions with Stephen, and answers you want from Government

The drop-in event will start at 3:30pm, and end at 5pm, taking place at 72 Albert Road, Southsea PO5 2SL.

Stephen Morgan MP, Member of Parliament for Portsmouth South said:

“The cost-of-living crisis is having a big impact and a lot of Portsmouth people are struggling at the moment. It’s therefore so important that everyone is aware of the help that is out there.

“I hope the event will give the local community the opportunity to voice any concerns they have and receive practical advice from experts who may be able to help them.

“If you would like to attend, make sure you book your place in advance.”
