Email the Prime Minister about the cost of living crisis
Write to the UK Prime Minister now to ask for more support for those in crisis due to the rising cost of living.
The Government has announced an energy price guarantee which will subsidise the typical energy bill by £1,049 per year. This is a welcome step for those struggling with rising bills and the cost of living. It was desperately needed. The energy price guarantee acknowledges the scale of the crisis we are facing. The guarantee will be in place from October for two years.
However, bills from October will still be almost double what they were a year ago! We need more action from the government to help those who are already experiencing financial crisis. Rent, fuel and food prices have risen to unaffordable levels that are simply unsustainable to households on low incomes. The reality for many is a winter of spiralling debt and wondering how they can keep fed and warm.
Write to our Prime Minister and ask her to provide much needed extra support to low income households throughout the cost of living crisis:
Provide targeted support for low income households.
Increase in Local Housing Allowance and other benefits.
A ban on energy companies forcibly switching customers to prepayment meters over winter.
