Out of pocket: the places at the sharp end of the UK’s cost of living crisis

Join us for this introduction to the Centre for Cities' new cost of living briefing followed by a panel discussion.

Event starts at 12.00 - 13.00 on 14 July 2022 at Online, via Zoom

On July 14th, Centre for Cities will publish a new report showing that some places in the UK are experiencing higher inflation than others, and that there are significant differences in how much is offset by wage growth between cities. This means that the impact of the Government’s £15bn cost of living support package will be asymmetric across cities.

Join us at this online event for a short presentation on the contents of the briefing followed by reflections and a discussion on the themes and policy implications from an expert panel.
