Sacrifices made for the cost-of-living crisis

We’re pleased to bring you the latest update to the Health, Wealth & Happiness Report, and an update to our Health, Wealth & Happiness Index, which you can read in more depth here.

There’s a lot going on in the world but this edition focuses on the cost-of-living crisis and the extent to which it’s dominating our thoughts, decisions, mental health, spending and actions.

This is what we’re cutting out and giving up. And what we refuse to give up. Here you’ll find scenarios that now look uncomfortably likely, and you’ll see what big life decisions many of us are having to put on pause. 

This year's report also reveals how high up the chain the crisis goes. Cost-cutting and sacrifice are reality not just for younger and average income families but for older age categories and high earners too. There’s not a lot of sunny reading inside, we can only hope and wish for better news soon.
