  • Women's experience of the Cost of Living Crisis

    Created: 10/01/2023

    A new report by the Poverty Alliance and the Scottish Women’s Budget Group has been released:  

    “It’s hard work being poor” - Women’s Experiences of the Cost-of-Living Crisis in Scotland - The Poverty Alliance

    This report by the Poverty Alliance and the Scottish Women’s Budget Group shares the experiences of women in Scotland on low incomes affected by the cost-of-living crisis.

    Through interviews and journals, a diverse group of women on low incomes shared deepening experiences of poverty and hardship including hunger and being cold.

    Alongside this, some women are struggling to repay existing debts or are at risk of accumulating more debt as a result of rising costs, sometimes using cost-of-living payments to repay debt.

    For more information contact Lauren Bennet, Policy Officer, Communities and Neighbourhoods, Fife Council, Fife House, Glenrothes KY7 5LT - [email protected].
