    The Cadent Foundation has recently announced the launch of its first-ever Winter Support Fund in a bid to rapidly inject vital financial help into communities across the UK.

    The new £2 million  fund aims to offer much-needed energy and food support to people living in the most vulnerable situations this winter and will be distributed through Cadent Foundation’s current charity partners, including Citizens Advice, Groundwork UK and Trussell Trust.

    The latest research from Opinion Matters reveals that almost all (89%) of UK adults with a household income of £29,500 or less are finding it challenging to cover their houshold bills. The Winter Fund comes at a time of increasing need across the country. 

    How to access the support

    The food and energy vouchers will be available to people who are living in the most vulnerable situations and who Cadent Foundations’ current charity partners, including the Trussell Trust and Citizens Advice, are supporting with energy efficiency and money management guidance.

    The funding boost will be available between December 2023 and March 2024 and has the potential to support thousands of homes across the country in areas of high deprivation. Each household can receive up to two vouchers, with the option of also having up to £100 to spend on essential heating and cooking appliances, such as heated blankets, slow cookers and air fryers.
