Fuel Poverty Update: Depher CIC

Date: 27/06/2022

NextEnergy Foundation is working with Depher CIC to address rising levels of poverty, particularly fuel-related poverty, across the UK. This is a long-term initiative.

As of 27th June, 51 individuals and families have been supported through the payment of gas and electric bills and with the distribution of food vouchers. The beneficiaries extend across the UK, from Burnley to Barnsley, London to Liverpool.

Depher is seeing the greatest need coming from people who have to choose between heating and eating. Most assistance since the last update in April 2022 has been provided to cover the costs of gas and electricity bills. Please visit the Depher CIC project page for more details.
