Warmer Winter Appeal

Why we need your help

More than 23,000 people in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin are living in fuel poverty, with cold homes putting them at risk of suffering illness, poor health and even death this winter.

As people continue to experience the impacts of Covid-19, this year it is more important than ever that we make sure the most vulnerable people in our society are kept safe, warm and well.

UPDATE - We've been absolutely blown away by the response to our appeal this year and have taken the decision to increase our target to £10,000 so we can help even more people who are facing fuel poverty in Shropshire this Winter - thank you so much to everyone who has already donated!

How we help

Our Warmer Winter Appeal raises money to give out in grants to households across Shropshire for emergency fuel and energy saving improvements in people’s homes.

We work with referral agencies to find people most in need and provide them with insulation, draft exclusion and other energy saving measures.

Who we help

Support from the Warmer Winter Appeal will have a direct impact on someone’s life in Shropshire.

Someone like Sheridan.

Sheridan has low blood pressure and feels the cold a lot. Her home has electric storage heaters but these weren’t enough to heat her house and she would often have to sit wrapped up in a duvet and blankets in an attempt to keep warm.

Her support officer nominated Sheridan to receive a grant that could be used to purchase an electric oil filled radiator, so she could at least have a warm lounge. Thanks to the support of people who donated to the Warmer Winter Appeal, we were able to help her purchase two radiators - one for her lounge and one for her bedroom.

Can you help?

By supporting our Warmer Winter Appeal with a donation you will be helping us to support local people in need; so they don't have to make the heart-breaking decision between eating and heating their homes.

As well as general donations, we're also asking those who receive the Winter Fuel Payment, who may not need, to considering donating some or all of the payment to our appeal, so help vunerable people in need.

We anticipate that 2020 will see a huge rise in demand for our help, so any support you can give is greatly received.
