Life in London is prohibitively, damagingly expensive.
And we have evidence: our research tells us that it costs between 15% and 60% more to reach a decent standard of living in London compared with the rest of the UK.
We’re determined to bring the cost of living down in the UK’s capital by supporting groups working to boost incomes, bring down expenses and end unacceptable levels of child poverty.
