On Friday 13th May, Mary held the second in a series of Cost of Living Advice Roadshows at Gilesgate Primary School.

There, constituents were able to access specialist expert help and advice on several issues relating to the rising cost of living, including from Citizens Advice County Durham, Durham Works, Believe Housing, and others.

This follows the first successful Cost of Living Advice Roadshow event held in Meadowfield earlier in the year and comes as the Government is being criticised by many for refusing to back Labour’s plans to introduce a windfall tax on oil and gas profits to bring the cost of energy bills down.

Reacting to the success of the recent Cost of Living Advice Roadshow, Mary said

It is so important that people get the help that they need while we are experiencing the biggest squeeze on our pockets in a generation. I wanted to make sure that people in Durham have that access to expert advice so I’m really happy that I can bring the Cost of Living Advice Roadshows around the constituency to bring people help when and where they need it. I’m grateful to all the staff at Gilesgate Primary School, all the agencies that provided help, and Councillor Chris Fletcher who also attended the roadshow – their commitment to helping people is wonderful.

Mary’s Cost of Living Advice Roadshows brings experts to different areas of the constituency to make sure that the people of Durham are able to access the quality advice that they need to help them through the current climate of rising costs. Mary is committed to making sure that people in Durham live in safety and security and will always stand up for those who are in need of help.

In the meantime, make sure to follow Mary for updates including details of the next Cost of Living Advice Roadshow event.
