Warmth Matters Fuel Vouchers
Why we need your help
Did you know that almost 35,000 households in Surrey live in Fuel Poverty?
Surrey Community Action is launching a new scheme, as part of our Warmth Matters advice project, designed to help the many people in Surrey who are facing a choice between heating and eating.
The scheme helps people who are struggling to pay for their energy with information, advice and guidance on ways to save energy, as well as providing emergency fuel vouchers to help families top-up their pre-payment meters in times of crisis and financial hardship.
Many people across Surrey are finding it hard to pay for their energy.
Many will be without gas or electricity when they receive a voucher. Providing people with fuel vouchers means that families will have to cut back less often on essential items and will stay healthier.
Through our work on our Warmth Matters Project, we have heard stories of how families frequently go without heating and are unable to cook a hot meal for their children.
Keeping warm can help both physical and mental wellbeing.
Do you need your Winter Fuel Payment? Could you help someone who is choosing whether to eat or heat this winter?
We are inviting those who receive a winter fuel allowance and feel they don’t need it, to donate all, or part of it to Surrey Community Action so we can help those who need it most. We know that people are more likely to turn their heating on or take a bath or shower if they receive a fuel voucher– things most of us take for granted.
If you can, please pass on your Winter Fuel Payment or make a donation to us and we will ensure it goes directly to those most in need. By working with local organisations such as charities and foodbanks we can target this need.
Your help could make sure fewer people have to choose between heating and eating.
