    Created: 11/01/2023
    News/Events Category: General News


    A recent 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. You can read the report here.
