UNISON help to apply
for Winter Fuel Grant
Click here for more details and application form
This winter, many UNISON members will be worried about
paying their gas and electricity bills as prices go
up and wages stay the same.
And they’re not alone. Fuel poverty in the UK
is increasing and today one in four households in
the UK suffers from it.
Worse yet, death rates in the
winter in the UK are much higher than in other cold
countries, with experts
suggesting that as many as 7,800 extra deaths a
year are because of lack of fuel.
There for You (formerly UNISON Welfare) can help. The
charity offers financial help,
debt advice, wellbeing breaks, support and information
and this winter will be running its winter fuel
grants programme: a bit of money to help those on low
get by and pay those ever increasing bills.
We also know that we need to tackle the issue
of high fuel costs head on. That’s why
forces with the Energy Bill Revolution to campaign
to end fuel poverty.
The campaign aims to use
the billions of pounds the government’s
carbon emissions tax raises to end fuel poverty,
create jobs and help the economy grow.
