Help end cold homes – please sign our petition

take action

Five million UK households live in fuel poverty – they cannot afford to keep their homes warm. Cold homes have been linked to the death of 7,000 older people each year, and higher rates of asthma and mental illness in children and teenagers.

We’re facing an energy bills crisis.  Families are suffering huge financial hardship, and one in four households can’t afford to heat their homes. Cold homes are damaging the health of our most vulnerable citizens, including children and older people.

But there’s a fair and permanent solution. We can have warm homes, cut our energy bills and tackle climate change.

Friends of the Earth have teamed up with 120 organisations like Barnados, Age UK and Mencap to demand a revolution in energy bills and help end this scandal.

You can help today by backing a massive investment in energy efficiency, to be funded by Government money from carbon taxes.

Sign the petition to end the fuel poverty scandal.

The scheme could improve an incredible 600,000 homes a year. It would make them cheaper to heat and cut their carbon footprint.  Eventually that would mean taking 9 out of 10 households out of the misery of fuel poverty.

Please tell the Government to act now.

Together we can end this scandal for good.

With best wishes,
Dave Timms, Energy Campaigner
