This winter could be the most devastating for fuel poor customers in years. Those who were already struggling with their energy costs may find that they are plunged deeper into crisis, while others who may have never been worried about their finances could find themselves in a very different situation to where they were 12 months ago. Many people are spending additional time at home and may need support with how to stay warm and safe; while those who are ill or self-isolating may also have concerns about practical challenges in paying for their energy, particularly if they have a pre-payment meter.

Friday 27 November marked Fuel Poverty Awareness Day 2020 and we have never needed your support more to get key messages out to vulnerable people this winter.

For our webinar ‘Wise Up About Fuel Poverty’, our Healthy Homes Energy Advice team gave first hand details of their experience in the field. Ben Bradshaw, MP for Exeter, also joined us. See what they discussed in the video below:
