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.
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.
If you can't make it to your local event, or there isn't something happening near you, you can still be part of the Mass Lobby online! Here's how you can get involved:
Here's how to use the map below to check if there's already an event on 1st April that you can join, or if you need to create one yourself:
Please note: we review all events before they go live, so don't worry about your event not appearing automatically! We will get in touch with event organisers if more than one event in the same place is created at the same time.
To help make your meeting a success, you can bring an MP pledge card for your MP to take a photo with to show their support, or placards to show what the campaign is demanding.
**The order form to request an MP pledge card or placards to be sent to you is now closed.**
However, you can still download them below to print at home or at a local printer. Note: the designs are A3 sized.
