Transcript for Practical tips for dealing with the cost-of-living challenges event in West Yorkshire

Hello, my name’s Iain Mitchell. I’m the Senior Engagement Manager in Yorkshire and Humberside for Thomas Pocklington Trust.

The idea of talking to you today was just to make you aware of a fantastic event that our West Yorkshire Sight Loss Council will be running on the 3rd of October as our VI Forum.

We want to give practical advice on how to meet the challenges which the cost of living is currently providing.

It’s going to be split into two halves. The first one will be our keynote speakers from the RNIB Citizens Advice and the Energy Doctor. We’re then going to be looking at three main components:

  • how to manage budgets
  • benefits maximisation
  • tips and advice on how to save energy

We also want to run a practical workshop which will allow you and us to share some practical tips and guides on what we can do to get through this difficult time.

At the end, lunch will be provided. It would be lovely if you could make it. Please register on the link that’s provided for further details. The event is going to be run on the 3rd of October 2022 at the Queens Hotel in Leeds, from 10am to 1pm. We really hope you can join us there.
