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 https://www.berkshirecf.org/survivingwinter/ 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.”
