Reverse cuts to Warm Home Discount

Reverse cuts to Warm Home Discount

Reverse cuts to Warm Home Discount.

Why is this important?

The eligibility criteria for receipt of Warm Home Discount, applied to gas and/or electricity bills and formerly covering the needs of a broad spectrum of especially vulnerable people, have now been reduced to a single factor, that of receipt of Guaranteed Credit element of Pension Credit.

This is a further cruel and unnecessary austerity aimed at pensioners, people with disabilities, lone parents with a disabled child / children and others. Please pass on this petition. Thank you.


Reasons for signing

  • People who can't afford to heat their homes need help so that vulnerable people do not die or suffer.

Thanks for signing. Warm Home Discount has been slashed ~ and now the Tories are in turmoil over the winter fuel payment.

We can win this! This is a further austerity aimed at not-so-well-off pensioners, people with disabilities, lone parents with disabled children and others. Real change happens when people stand up for what we believe in. Please share on Facebook / Twitter / LinkedIn etc.
