Fighting fuel poverty  

Millions of households in the UK live in fuel poverty, and for older people this can cause a number of health issues, such as cardiovascular problems, depression and social isolation.   

The Surviving Winter campaign run by the Dorset, Somerset, Wiltshire and Quartet Community Foundations is supporting those facing fuel poverty. 

The campaign encourages people to make a donation (eg, their winter fuel payment if they can afford to do without it) to help those in need this winter. 

“We were so grateful for the grant, it encouraged us to put the heating on more to keep ourselves warm.”
