Will you help families in need this winter? The events of the last 18 months have been hard for us all. For the families we support, the impact has been even harder, and the “new normal” for them is tougher than it ever was before. With Universal Credit being cut, well-publicised energy price increases and jobs lost as a result of the furlough scheme ending in September, families are struggling even more to find enough money for essential bills. The choice of “heating or eating” is real, and devastating.
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 lives which have already been disproportionately affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
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.
