Surrey Community Action is launching a new scheme, as part of our Warmth Matters advice project, designed to help the many people in Surrey who are facing a choice between heating and eating.

The scheme helps people who are struggling to pay for their energy with information, advice and guidance on ways to save energy, as well as providing emergency fuel vouchers to help families top-up their pre-payment meters in times of crisis and financial hardship.

We are inviting those who receive a winter fuel allowance and feel they don’t need it, to donate all, or part of it to Surrey Community Action via our VirginMoney fundraising page so we can help those who need it most. We know that people are more likely to turn their heating on or take a bath or shower if they receive a fuel voucher– things most of us take for granted.
