The chilling reality of Winter for vulnerable UK families
Too many face the difficult choice between heating and eating.
The drop in temperature exacerbates ongoing medical conditions
Short days and long nights compound isolation and mental strain
The stress of Winter adds to what UNICEF now calls “multi-dimensional poverty” for struggling UK families. Nearly half a million people will be forced into poverty due to the benefit freeze, despite the fact more than 50% are in work. 2.3 million households cannot afford to keep their homes warm and 2.2 million children live in fuel poverty, making them twice at risk of physical health problems and four times more likely to develop mental health issues.
But it needn’t be this way…
Together, we can ensure that no family slips through the cracks this Winter
How You Gave WARM HHUGS last Winter
Sulaiman didn’t have to freeze for another night in his car because you provided a roof over his head
Aunty Khadijah’s home was no longer stone cold as you helped to heat her home
Yusuf kept warm because the coat you gave protected him from the icy cold.
