Thousands of vulnerable people in Sheffield could be left unable to heat their home this winter.
People with underlying health issues are being asked to shield during the Coronavirus pandemic. With over 25,000 people in Sheffield already struggle with heating bills, the worry is our most vulnerable will be left in the cold this winter.
People over the age of 66 can apply for Winter Fuel Payments to help. But what about the other people – some of which will be children – who are having to shield?
We are calling on Sheffield City Council to urgently support Sheffield’s vulnerable people over the next 2 months and to lobby the Government to ensure no one is left in the cold this winter.
