Get winter ready
This winter it’s more important than ever to stay safe and well. We’ve shared some helpful resources to help you look after yourself and your family.
We know that this winter is going to be even more difficult for many people. The recent Academy of Medical Sciences ‘Preparing for a challenging winter 2020/21’ paper – commissioned by the Government Office for Science - notes that in homes where the temperature is less than 18 degrees centigrade the Covid-19 virus will thrive.
We are concerned about the impact this could have on those households in fuel poverty so we’ve written to government and the energy sector to ask for their support to make changes that could make a difference to our customers. You can see what we’ve asked for in these letters.
We're working with other housing associations representing over 1 million customers to end fuel poverty. Show your support by visiting @homegroup on twitter and re-sharing the letters we've sent to the government and the energy sector (pinned tweet) - you could also tag your energy provider. If you're a housing association and want to get involved in the campaign, email firstname.lastname@example.org
