Surviving Winter – changing lives, Donate now

Berkshire Community Foundation is asking those receiving the Government ‘Winter Fuel Payment’, and anyone else who would like to give, to make a donation to the Surviving Winter Fund to help local vulnerable people living in fuel poverty. See for more details.

CCB received some grant funding towards last year’s CCB Family Home Energy Education and Advice Project, which:

  • advised 248 families, of which 188 were vulnerable families in fuel poverty,
  • supported over 20 partner organisations with briefings or training on supporting their low-income and vulnerable families during the pandemic
  • set up a telephone advice service for low-income families to advise on cutting the cost of their bills, and dealing with debt

Families advised said:

“I was really worried about my bills – the advice has been a great help”

“Useful advice that I can put into practice easily”

“Helen made sure I understood how to deal with the issues, and speak to the energy companies”

Comment from a Family Support Worker in Slough –  “This support and advice is excellent, your service is greatly needed for children and families in Slough.”
