UK govt: Keep people warm this winter

Oil and gas companies are getting richer while people are struggling to pay their bills. Our government’s failure to act will have catastrophic effects this winter.

The New Economics Foundation, along with other leading anti-poverty and environmental organisations, have united to create Warm This Winter, a new campaign demanding the government acts now to help tackle rising energy bills this winter and ensure energy is affordable for everyone in the future.

Together, we are demanding from the UK government:

  • Emergency support now: Provide additional financial support to people who without urgent action will be on the front-line of poverty this winter.
  • Help to upgrade homes: Launch a properly-funded programme of home upgrades and insulation across the UK to bring down bills and prevent energy waste.
  • Cheap energy: More than triple the amount of renewable energy in the UK by 2030, including wind and solar generated in harmony with nature, so that we can permanently lower bills.
  • Free us from oil and gas: Stop opening up new oil and gas fields so that we can escape our dependence on volatile fossil fuels.

Can you join us and call on the government to act now to keep people warm this winter?

Thank you!
