Caroline Abrahams, Charity Director at Age UK said:

“We’re pleased our call to double the value of the Household Support Fund has been heeded but as that was the only announcement that helps older people on low and modest incomes - unless they are drivers - we don’t think the Chancellor has gone far enough today. Older people tell us that every time they go shopping the prices seem to have gone up again, and that’s really tough to manage if you’re reliant on a meagre Pension. Unfortunately, for older people like these, and younger ones on low incomes too, the next few months threaten to be extremely stressful, as they struggle to continue to make ends meet.”
