Join the mass lobby this spring!


For millions of us around the country, energy bills are already unaffordable. But from 1st April, the amount we pay will rise again. And while UK households have struggled to keep warm this winter, oil and gas giants have been raking in record profits.

It couldn't be clearer that our energy system is broken - but only the government has the power to fix it. So we're coming together this spring to demand lasting change from our MPs in a mass lobbying effort to hold this government to account.

Join us on 1st April and ask your MP to sign the pledge to help keep everyone warm every winter.

Why now?

On April 1st, the prices we pay for our energy will rise once again.

As Grant Shapps has been keen to point out, gas prices have now fallen to pre-crisis levels, and analysts are forecasting that the typical annual bills will drop this Autumn to around £2100, which is still more than double what we were paying in 2020. But, this is not before the government is set to cut the support available to households in fuel poverty by ending the Energy Bills Support Scheme. In short, in 2023 we will see bills going up and support going down with millions spending another winter in cold damp homes.

Here's how to take part

In short:

  • Get in touch with your MP to arrange a meeting, on or as close as possible to April 1st, and ask them to sign the pledge.
  • Invite others from your community.
  • Register your meeting on the map so others can join.
