We are aware that criminals may take advantage of the current cost of living crisis by running focused scams, targeted on more vulnerable consumers. We are also keen to ensure that unfair commercial practices do not increase quickly, perhaps taking advantage of current circumstances.

There are also particular business advice and consumer issues linked to the cost of living crisis. As such, we want to ensure relevant advice is available in a single place.

This web page has been created to provide as much information as possible to consumers and businesses to ensure they remain protected, advised, and supported during this challenging period.
