Petition Implement a social energy tariff for disabled and financially vulnerable people

Prevent more people falling into fuel poverty by implementing a social energy tariff. An energy social tariff based on household income and household energy consumption could lift millions out of fuel poverty, including disabled and vulnerable people who are rationing energy.

More details

A consultation on support for energy bills was promised over a year ago. Failing to implement this policy could cost lives this winter.

Further failure to take action on energy could leave more disabled people and others in fuel distress. For instance, disabled people can have higher energy use for mobility and health needs, and some are not charging essential equipment they need daily as they cannot afford their heating.

We believe current cost of living payments are woefully inadequate, and a social tariff is needed urgently.
