Today we launch Your Money Matters - our campaign to help you overcome the surge in the cost of living.

This year has seen a whole host of household of price increases - from the energy price cap rise to surging inflation and food prices - costing your family hundreds or even thousands of pounds extra per year.

At The Impartial Reporter, we’re making it our mission to bring to you all the stories in this community on the impact this cost of living crisis is having on our readers like you.

The worldwide energy crisis exacerbated by the Ukraine invasion, financial impact from the Covid pandemic, record inflation figures and a surge in the cost of goods, fuel and travel means we will all feel the pinch.

Through our newspaper, we want to do what we can to help make your cash go further because we know your money matters.

Impartial Reporter editor, Mark Conway said: "We're facing a perfect storm of increased costs at every turn but there is help out there for people who are struggling.

"Clearly this is a worrying time for many and that’s why in our newspaper we will be offering you solutions, support and tips on how you can overcome the crisis."

Despite chancellor Rishi Sunak announcing measures to help people in the spring budget, it’s clear we all face unprecedented financial challenges.

That’s why in the coming weeks we will shine a light on those affected most by increased costs.

Also watch out for the hashtag #yourmoneymatters on social media over the coming days and weeks to see more of how we can help you and your family through this difficult time.
