UK Govt, Keep People Warm This Winter


We all deserve to be warm in our own home, but right now soaring energy bills mean that many millions of people will struggle to pay their energy bill. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Caroline Lucas MP is hosting a debate on Fossil Fuels and Increases in the Cost of Living in Parliament at Westminster Hall on the 11th of January from 9.30am to 11am. It's a great opportunity for us to show MPs why fixing the cost of living crisis means taking the leap away from fossil fuels - and why it needs to happen now. But first, we need to get MPs in the hall.

Open letter to the Prime Minister:

Urgently back common-sense solutions to keep people warm this winter.

Sign the petition to tell the UK government that your family, your neighbours, your town deserves to be Warm This Winter.

The energy crisis has left 7 million UK households in fuel poverty this winter. This comes after oil and gas giants, like Shell and BP, announced record-breaking profits. No more.

This government's failure to fix the UK's broken energy system is impacting millions of people's lives, particularly those who are elderly, disabled or have a medical condition.

It’s wrong that people in this country are forced to ride buses or visit public spaces just to keep warm – while, at the same time, oil and gas companies make vast profits. 

We all deserve to be warm in our own home, but right now soaring energy bills mean that many millions of people will be unable to heat their homes. It doesn’t have to be this way.

The UK has the means to solve the energy price crisis – but it will take action from the government. We’re demanding the UK government helps those people who need it now and fixes the UK’s broken energy system for good. Here's what we're demanding:

  • Emergency support now: Providing additional financial support to people who without urgent action will be on the front-line of poverty this winter.
  • Help to upgrade homes: Launching a new, properly-funded programme of home upgrades and insulation across the UK to bring down bills and prevent energy waste.
  • Cheap energy:  More than triple the amount of renewable energy in the UK by 2030, including wind and solar generated in harmony with nature, so that we can permanently lower bills.
  • Free us from oil and gas: Stop approving new oil and gas fields so that we can escape our dependence on volatile fossil fuels.
