We rely on your support to help older people in Southampton, and are increasingly concerned about the impact of the cost of living crisis.

The way the cost of living keeps rising is a nightmare for us all, but especially for people on low incomes, among them thousands of pensioners. Every day the news about inflation seems to get worse - no wonder many older people have told us they have stopped listening to the news.

Donating your energy rebate
We know that many people are struggling with the cost of living, including increases in the cost of petrol and food, as well as fuel. The new rebate will be much needed, providing at least some temporary relief. While many of the measures announced are aimed at the most vulnerable, every household should receive the £400; it is not means tested and you cannot opt out. If you don’t need the energy rebate, then why not consider donating some or all of it to help those struggling?

Age UK Southampton are raising money to provide additional advice and practical support through this difficult time:

Welfare benefits checks and assistance with applications
Guidance on support from your local Council
Advice on energy usage
Welfare benefits checks, advice and assistance with applications
