Fuel Poverty Update: Depher CIC

Date: 27/09/2022

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 23rd September, 81 individuals and their families have been supported through the payment of gas and electric bills and with the provision of food vouchers. The map below illustrates the distribution of the recipients across the UK with an enlarged section for the London postcodes.

Although NEF agreed to provide support through the payment of bills and the provision of both food vouchers and school supplies, Depher is seeing the greatest need coming from people affected by rising fuel costs.
