Ashden is pleased to support the Warm This Winter campaign.
We all deserve to be warm in our own home, but right now soaring energy prices mean that many millions of people in the UK are struggling to pay their bills. Worryingly, gas prices are predicted to stay high for at least three years, which means today’s sky-high energy bills are not a ‘one off’.
While high gas prices are global and driven by factors outside of our control, the government can resolve the energy price crisis but it needs action now.
The Warm this Winter campaign demands that the UK government provides more emergency financial support for people this winter, funding to help everyone cut their bills with better insulation, and rapidly moves the country away from expensive gas and onto cheaper, renewable energy.
The Government needs to act to lower energy bills now and in the future.
The Warm this Winter campaign demands that the government provides more emergency money for people this winter, funding to help people cut their bills with better insulation, and rapidly moves the country away from expensive gas and onto cheaper, sustainable renewable energy.
Warm This Winter is supported by leading anti-poverty and environmental organisations, including Save the Children, WFF and the End Fuel Poverty Coalition.
