As the winter approaches, many people will be concerned about their heating bills and how they’ll be able to afford to keep their homes warm through the colder weather. We know that this is a huge problem for many of the people we support and it can have severe effects on diet, health and well being.
This November, we’ll be launching our forth fuel poverty campaign to highlight the reality of this issue and raise awareness of the help available.
New research results to be released
The campaign will kick off with the release of our new research investigating if and how low income working households are struggling with energy costs. We’ll also be hosting an online auction of winter clothing items donated by a number of celebrities to create a strong talking point around the issue and spread the word to new audiences.
Use our online tools to find help
Through the campaign, we’ll be communicating that anyone who is struggling can use our services to see if they might be eligible for welfare benefits or charitable grants. We’ll also signpost to other help including schemes provided by energy suppliers.
Support our fuel poverty campaign
We’re asking charities and organisations to get involved in the campaign by sharing articles, supporting on social media or providing a guest article for our campaign blog, so that we can reach more people in need.
If you’d like to be involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
