Call To Action – Cost-of-living crisis

Call to action from St. Paul’s Trust CEO David Cusack regarding the worsening cost of living crisis.

With the winter looming and the cost-of-living crisis getting more severe I want to reach out to third sector colleagues/faith groups/business’s’ in the Balsall Heath area to see if there is an appetite for us to come together to see what we can collectively do to support the local population who we all know will struggle to heat their homes and feed their families.

I believe that collectively we could make a difference and I am therefore suggesting that as many of us who are interested in working together meet to try and scope out an approach.
