STATEMENT: Groundwork response to the energy price cap announcement

In response to today’s energy price cap announcement, Graham Duxbury, Groundwork’s UK Chief Executive, said:

“This announcement is deeply concerning for households that are already feeling the brunt of rising bills and the continuing financial effect of the pandemic. Every day our energy advisors meet families unable to stay warm because of soaring energy prices.

“Financial support for vulnerable households is essential, and needs to be accompanied by trusted, independent energy advice to help people make their money go further. In the long-term, we need to work together to improve home insulation and roll out greener heating methods, so that we can all afford to stay warm while meeting our carbon reduction commitments.”
