Will you help families in need this winter? Across Sussex over 40,000 families live in fuel poverty; without enough money to pay for heating as well as their other essential outgoings. Cold and damp homes can have a severe impact on children, with physical health problems intensified and family relationships strained. Many of the families we work with cannot afford to keep heating their homes throughout winter. The choice of “heating or eating” is real and one that we believe no family should have to make. Please help us to share the warmth this winter.
If you will be receiving the Winter Fuel payment this year, we are asking you to consider donating this payment to us. The families we work with are not eligible for this payment, yet they find the autumn and winter months a real struggle as there is frequently no money to spend on heating their homes during cold weather. This is an added stress for their already difficult lives.
With your help, we can ensure that none of our families have to struggle to pay for heating, and can instead focus their energies on overcoming the other challenges they are facing. Your generosity will make a real difference to local families this winter. Please donate and share the warmth. Thank you.
