National Energy Action Cymru/Wales NEA Donation Information
This winter more than five million households in the UK will not be able to afford to heat and power their homes. They will be in fuel poverty, needing to spend ten percent or more of their income on energy.
The average households now faces an annual energy bill of more than £1300 - thirty per cent higher than a year ago and more than double the average bill of five years ago.
Already more than 20,000 people die from the cold during the winter and many more become ill and go into debt. The additional impact of these rocketing fuel bills will be disastrous. Fuel poverty has reached crisis levels.
