Every household in Northern Ireland will soon receive a household energy payment of £600 to help with electricity and fuel cost. For many this is a much needed form of support, however there are those who may find they don’t need this payment.
If you would like to use all, or part, of your payment to help families and communities in need you can do so through a donation to our Energy Support Appeal.
The Community Foundation will use your donation to make a real difference to people’s lives by supporting charities and groups working to help those struggling this winter.
“Almost 72% of Northern Ireland will be in fuel poverty in 2023 (551,000 households)”

“The Community Foundation knows that rising prices across fuel, food and general living costs are resulting in increased poverty, increased destitution and a lower standard of living for many in Northern Ireland.”
