Kent's cost of living crisis

A mother and her two-year-old child sleeping in a car.

A man needing medical care who couldn’t afford to heat his freezing home.

A young woman facing illegal eviction.

These are just some of the heartbreaking calls our helpline – the only one of its kind in Kent – received last month.

The cost of living is increasing at a dramatic rate. Kent residents are among the worst affected in the UK.

We're bracing ourselves for a rise in callers unable to cover their food and energy bills or keep a roof over their head.

Times are tough for so many people. Your donation of any amount can help us continue to be the caring voice at the end of the phone for someone who feels completely alone.

With a regular gift to Porchlight, you'll help us provide the long term support someone needs to turn their life around.

For every £1 you give, 96p will go straight to providing our support for people in Kent when they need us.
