I have allocated £3.7m from the 2022-23 GLA budget for actions in response to the cost of living. Part of this funding will be used to improve the usability and accessibility of the hub; support targeted awareness raising of the hub through targeted community engagement; and fund the development of new or existing third-party digital tools that can be signposted to from the hub.
The remainder of the £3.7m funding will focus on ensuring we can reach Londoners who are digitally excluded or who would benefit from accessing face-to-face support.
Separately to this, the hub and the support it offers will be promoted to Londoners through an online and in-person campaign funded through existing resource.
The hub will remain live while the cost of living crisis is still affecting Londoners.
