Cost of living support
Colchester City Council is providing support for residents facing the cost of living crisis.
Our objective is to increase community resilience across the borough by encouraging more self-help and self-reliance to achieve the ambitions of local groups, protect services and reduce cost.
By galvanising volunteering and community activity, the borough gains more "social capital‟. This is defined as more citizenship, neighbourliness, social networks and civic participation.
The Community Enabling Strategy was agreed by the Cabinet in June 2015.
