On the 22nd of November, the statistics of “excess winter deaths” from 2016 will be released.
At the same time, Ofgem are considering details of their “safeguard” cap, which excludes many who need it most – see post about this here: https://dpac.uk.net/tag/vulnerable-customer-safeguard-cap/
Fuel Poverty Action believes next week would be a good opportunity to present Ofgem with a letter in person explaining why it is wrong to exclude disabled people from their proposed safeguard tariff and is asking for help to get the message across.
If you are disabled and can’t afford your energy bills and are happy to speak to the media about how this affects you (anonymously or otherwise) please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would also like to invite people to come and join in handing over the letter on Tuesday 21 November, at 11 a.m. at the Ofgem office, 9 Millbank SW1P 3GE. We’re planning on making this loud and colourful outside the building, so banners and placards are encouraged! If you can make it then please let Fuel Poverty Action know.
