A topical session on the current cost of living crisis – and what can be done about it.

As a busy mum of three, Lorna Cooper knows only too well the challenge of feeding a busy family on a budget. With Feed Your Family she'll teach you how to transform one key ingredient into four meals - saving you time, money and headspace, and also reducing waste with every dish.

For every recipe cooked from scratch, Lorna will show you how to make three more fuss-free dishes to feed four people. From a delicious Roast Chicken dinner that also gives you Lemon Chicken and Pasta Soup, Taco Bell Chicken Quesadillas, and Chicken Bolognaise, to an all-in-one Pot Roast Pork that transforms into Mexican Pork Soup, Pulled Pork Nachos and Pork Jambalaya for the days that follow, never has delicious, affordable family food been easier.

In Tenants: The People on the Frontline of Britain's Housing Emergency, journalist Vicky Spratt traces decades of bad policy decisions to show how and why the British dream of homeownership has withered and the safety net of social housing has broken. Through the lives of those in the renting trap, she illuminates the ways this crisis is devastating our health, communities and political landscape. But, as the Covid epidemic showed, there are also real, radical steps we can take to give everyone the chance of a good home.
