You can help bring warm, sustainable homes for all
As the weather cools, the nationwide campaign to ensure that everyone can have a warm home that doesn't cost the earth is really hotting up.
Saturday 18th November is the United for Warm Homes National Day of Action and we will be meeting with our MPs to show them the popularity of our campaign asks and to ask them to work to make those asks a reality. Those 3 asks are
financial help now for those struggling with energy bills
a nationwide programme of home insulation
an energy system based not on costly fossil fuels but on climate friendly renewables
We'll be using our local United for Warm Homes petition to demonstrate support for these measures.
Can you help by adding your name now?
More names on the St Albans and District United for Warm Homes petition shows the depth of support for the 3 measures we're asking for.
If MPs know that actions have the support of more people, they're more likely to press for them.
Let's show our MPs that our measures for warm homes are vote winners
Let's give as many people as possible the chance to show their support for the campaign for sustainable, warm homes.
Can you sign the petition then share it with a family member, a friend or a group?
With your help we can make sustainable, warm homes for all a reality.
Take these 3 steps towards warm homes now
With more and more people unable to afford energy bills and the pressures of man made climate change becoming ever more urgent, the asks of our United for Warm Homes campaign are what we need now:
financial help for those who can't afford bills
a nationwide role out of home insulation
an energy system based on renewable, affordable energy
You can help bring these goals closer, and help people and the planet, by taking these 3 easy steps.
