Almost 50,000 households in Sussex live in fuel poverty; with the cost of heating leaving them below the poverty line and unable to afford essential outgoings.
At FSW we work with hundreds of families in Sussex, many of whom cannot afford to keep warm throughout winter. The choice of "heating or eating" is real and one that we believe no family should have to make.
If you are eligible to receive a Winter Fuel payment from the government this winter, please consider donating some, or all, of this allowance to help local families living in fuel poverty. Thank you.
