Rishi Sunak has set out new cost of living crisis measures, giving financial support to all, funded by a windfall tax on huge profits from oil and gas giants.
The rebate will not be entirely means-tested - meaning that every household in the UK will receive at least £400 back towards their cost of living. Those fortunate enough to own more than one home will also benefit from this, per household.
For some, this rebate will be a very welcome income on the costs of living that are going through the roof. For others who are more financially secure, it’s a nice bonus. But for the millions who have been plunged deep into poverty it’s literally the difference between heating or eating.
We call on you to consider donating all or part of your energy rebate to the charities that are supporting those who need it the most. Our vulnerable children, families and elderly in our communities - our neighbours, teachers, nurses and our loved-ones.
Join the campaign here and now by either donating to one of the charities or by making a promise to donate in the future.
If we come together and #DonateTheRebate we can help level this up.
If you can give now, we are supporting national charities who are at the front line of the cost of living crisis in the UK. They all need support at this time. Don't forget to select Gift Aid to turn a £400 donation into a £500 donation.
