Heat and Eat Campaign

We are bringing you this campaign in collaboration with Energy Support and Advice UK.

Yet again we are seeing the UK Government not acting in the best interest of the people. They are allowing the cost of living to soar while doing little to keep people out of poverty.

This Government is raising the price cap on energy by 54%, when the energy companies are making billions a year. They are offering a mere £350 worth of support, £200 of which has to be paid back, when peoples bills are going up by thousands. This shows that they don’t care if people have to choose whether to Heat OR Eat.

However, we do care and we will hold them accountable. We have liaised with many specialists in a number of different areas from energy, economists, benefits advisors and more to come up with a set of demands that we believe will truly serve the people and enable all to be able to Heat AND Eat.

These are our demands: 

HALT 

  • HALT the 54% energy price cap rise
  • HALT the National Insurance Tax hike

 

ASSIST 

  • RAISE benefits in line with inflation
  • ENABLE more people to get help
  • INCREASE the winter discounts
  • INCREASE Local Housing Allowance

 

ENERGY EFFICIENCY

  • INCREASE energy efficiency funding
  • MAKE funding more accessible 
  • ENSURE all homes are brought up to a minimum of Category D EPC rating within 2 years

There are a number of lone voices speaking on this but it is only when we all

UNITE with one strong message does it get noticed and change happens.

One lone email to a single MP is very unlikely to enact change but when all the MPs receive thousands and thousands of them it lets them know that they have to act.

This cost of living crisis affects us all so we need to reach as many people as possible.

Lots of people like to do outreach which is wonderful as lots of people are more inclined to read a leaflet or they’re not on social media.

You can download the flyer by clicking on the image below:

We also have stickers and business cards that you can download.

Help us reach as many people as possible!

We liaised with a lot of experts to construct the most effective demands, we have explained them more fully in a briefing that you can read below.

We will ensure all MPs, Members of the House of Lords and media outlets will receive a copy so they fully understand our stance and exactly how it is possible to enact the demands that we have made.

We are leaving them with no excuse not to support the people.

Heat and Eat Briefing

We recognise that energy bills are a nightmare to understand. When you don’t know your kilowatts to your variable tariffs it can leave you at a severe disadvantage when dealing with your energy company and ensuring you get the best deal you can.

We have nearly finished a guide that will explain it all for you. Ensure you’re following us on social media for first look.

We are then aiming to get physical copies out to all food banks across the country, then if possible schools and places of worship as well to empower as many people as possible.

COMING SOON

We are thrilled to be working with this new and upcoming organisation on this Heat and Eat Campaign.

Who are they?

This is an organisation set up by people who have decades of collective experience working for the energy companies and it was founded by Gemma Hatvani.

What is their mission?

Their mission is to educate and empower people with the knowledge to become more energy efficient and to understand their bills and debts.

Can they help me?

They absolutely can! Currently the best way to engage with them is in their 30,000+ strong Facebook group. 

Website and page coming soon.

Donating today will enable us to distribute physical copies of the “Understand and Taking Control of Your Energy Bills” to those most in need, as well as supporting the overall running of this campaign and Save Our Rights UK.
