Harborough Climate Action is proud to be a supporter of this campaign being led by Friends of the Earth. Our local campaign will be focussed on getting better support for the potentially thousands of residents across Harborough facing fuel poverty this winter and beyond.
Come and join us for our first public meeting :
Date : Saturday March 25th
Time : 2pm - 5pm
Venue : Methodist Church, Northampton Rd, MH
If you are interested in coming along, please let us know :
The campaign will be calling for our local and national politicians to provide the following :
Urgent additional financial support to keep people warm. Even with the government’s price freeze, too many people will be pushed into rationing their energy use this winter and living in cold, damp homes. We need more targeted support to keep people warm and well.
A nationwide insulation programme. We need the government to roll out an emergency programme of insulation and energy saving measures now - starting in neighbourhoods where fuel poverty is highest.
Permanent fixes to our failed energy system. Our energy system currently prioritises massive fossil fuel company profits over meeting people’s basic needs. By powering our homes with cheap and clean renewables and guaranteeing everyone the energy they need to live comfortably, we can ensure no one is left in the cold
