Energy Lifeline

Radiator with gloves 2 detail

We were delighted to be able to take part in a scheme where we supported 270 tenants with fuel vouchers over winter. Organised through a charity, the scheme was aimed at tenants who had prepayment gas and electric meters, and who had been financially affected as a result of coronavirus. We knew that energy costs had been difficult for many tenants over winter with incomes dropping and more people having to stay at home due to the pandemic. We were aware of a growing number of tenants worried about fuel debt. Single households could receive up to £84, and families up to £147 via the vouchers which were administered online. For some households, the vouchers were a lifeline in difficult times. We received a lot of positive feedback including one tenant who said,

“You are making me cry now. I am touched with this kindness after what I am going through. Thank you for giving me a reason to smile today. Please thank the charity so much from me too”
