The cost of living crisis is currently affecting many families in their community, including stretching the household income pushing many more families into poverty this winter. The winter months present the greatest health risks to many vulnerable families who are living in poverty and need assistance. Many children have to walk to and from school without a coat or food, which has an adverse effect on their concentration, attendance, and performance.
