Fuel Poverty Appeal
Help us to help vulnerable household who are struggling with energy costs and also help us ensure community spaces stay warm and welcoming to all.
For warmer homes & community spaces
As fuel, energy and food costs continue to rise, many are facing a tough time.
Your donation will helping community spaces to stay warm and to keep welcoming local residents. And you will be helping those who are suffering hardship, particularly those who are vulnerable, disabled, supporting young children or suffering with long-term illness and conditions
We’ve raised funds to support energy costs for the past 11 years but the situation is more acute than ever. Every penny raised will help those who need it.
The current crisis impacts everyone but lower income households are hit hardest. In Herefordshire 17% of households are already considered fuel poor, this is likely to rise to a staggering 28% this winter.
How can you help?
- Donate your winter fuel allowance
- Give whatever you feel you can afford or spare
Your grant of £3,500 will fund the Savvy & Successful Project, which will empower 70 young people to escape the cycle of poverty and make a new life for themselves. The project Savvy & Successful will teach these young people to make success of themselves on their own merits, regardless of what happens at home. It will empower them with the knowledge that they deserve, employment opportunities so they can succeed. On behalf of our staff and users, we express our deep appreciation for partnering in empowering young people to succeed.

Our client was really blown away by the support. He feels like a weight has been lifted. His neighbour, who picks up food for him, says he looks 10 years younger because of the easing of stress by the fuel grant.Leominster Food Bank, (Fuel Poverty)

Thank you so much for your generous funding of our trip to Hay Festival…it meant that we could take extra staff to take some of the pressure off crowd-managing the students. We were able to take nearly 90 students and they described it as ‘the best day ever!’.Aylestone School, May 2023 (Herefordshire Education Fund)
