Share The Warmth With FSW This Winter
Over 40,000 families in Sussex live in fuel poverty; without enough money to pay for heating as well as their other essential outgoings. Cold and damp homes can have a severe impact on children, with physical health problems intensified and family relationships strained. We work with hundreds of families in need throughout Sussex, many of whom cannot afford to keep warm throughout the winter. The choice of “heating or eating” is real and one that we believe no family should have to make.
The Winter Fuel Payment will soon be distributed by the Government to aid the additional cost of heating homes over the winter months. Unfortunately none of our families are eligible for this payment, and are already concerned about how they will cope during the predicted extremely cold weather in the coming weeks.
If you will be receiving the Winter Fuel Payment this year, would you consider donating it to Family Support Work so that we can pass it on to help those who need it the most? A donation of £200, or any amount you feel able to give, could make an enormous difference to a local family dreading the approach of the cold weather and the added pressures this will bring.
With your help we can reach hundreds of families this winter and do our best to spread the warmth amongst the communities who need it the most. Thank you.
