Leader of the council, Councillor Stephen Simkins, said: “Helping our citizens through the cost of living crisis remains a top priority and we’re doing everything we can to help from food and energy to everyday household essentials.

“Many people have already benefitted from dropping into the Help at the Hub events and I’d encourage others to take advantage of the huge range of expert advice on offer all in one place. This is just another level of protection and support we’re offering for those who need it.”

Councillor Craig Collingswood, cabinet member for environment and climate change at City of Wolverhampton Council, said: “Our Help at the Hub days are proving extremely useful to residents and I am pleased to see that they have become a regular fixture in the calendar.
