The cost-of-living crisis has hit some people harder than others.
In the heart of Kensington lies the Kensington Fields Community Association, who have been doing a lot to help the community deal with these sky-high costs.
The association host a weekly food pantry on a Tuesday from 10am-3pm allowing people to take ten grocery items each for just £3.50 – their pantry is part of St Andrew North Liverpool network.
They also provide one-off emergency food parcels. Money advice can be received at the centre on a Tuesday along with an older person’s lunch club.
The association also provides an array of activities for children such as a library with books and furniture provided by the Steve Morgan foundation, including story times, book borrowing and literacy and drama activities.
There are after-school clubs at KFCA on Tuesdays and Thursdays to give some extra help to busy parents as well as holiday activities and food for those who struggle during half term and Easter.
The volunteers at Kensington Fields are constantly looking for ways to brighten their community in tough times.
