At Inskip St. Peter’s CE Primary School, we recognise the difficulty that many people will be facing with cost of living issues.
We have provided details and links to national and local sources of advice, support and financial assistance that may be able to help you and your family. Please also be mindful of scams during this time – never give your bank details to anyone without being sure of their identity.
We hope you find this information useful should you need to use it. If you have any concerns, particularly about how cost of living issues may be affecting your child, please do contact the school on 01772690438 and we will listen and aim to help as best we can.
Please note: In all instances where you have an emergency expense issue, such as paying rent, you should contact your local Citizens Advice service and the council.

Housing Loss Prevention and Advice Service
From 1st August 2023 people facing eviction or repossession in England and Wales can receive free, expert legal advice from the Housing Loss Prevention and Advice Service (HLPAS).
Advice is available once a written notice is received by a tenant or homeowner and provides a housing expert to look at issues, such as rent/mortgage arrears, welfare benefit payments and debt. People can also have legal representation in court, regardless of their financial circumstances.
Further information, including how to access HLPAS, is available at Legal aid for possession proceedings - GOV.UK
