Story

9% of households in Cambridgeshire

go cold over winter

In one of the most prosperous counties in the UK, many households simply cannot afford to keep adequately warm over winter. Incredibly, many parts of our county are amongst the worst nationally for fuel poverty.

This really matters. There is strong evidence and research that shows fuel poverty means:

- About 100 people die over winter in Cambridgeshire because of fuel poverty!

- Is detrimental to physical health & mental health

- Leads to social isolation

- For children, leads to truancy, anti-social behaviour & negative effects on education attainment

CCF is determined to do something about this. We want warm homes for thousands of vulnerable people right across Cambridgeshire.

Everyone in Cambridgeshire over the age of 65 receives a non-means-tested Winter Fuel Payment, whether they need it or not. If you don't need it, please donate an equivalent or part of it to the Surviving Winter Appeal, so that it can help other people or families in the county living in fuel poverty. We would also be very grateful for any donations, of any amount from people of all ages who simply want to support our appeal.

The Surviving Winter Appeal is quite simply a life saver.
