Helping the poor and the vulnerable with their energy bills during the energy crisis of 2022-2023 in the United Kingdom.

Dr Julianne Law


We need to ‘redistribute’ taxpayers’ money to the poor and the most vulnerable. The government has already allocated £400 a year for every household in the United Kingdom, and this money has already been included in the government’s budget for the next six months (October 2022-March 2023). Liz Truss promised that this support would be for the next two years, but the current Chancellor of the Exchequer Jeremy Hunt has said that this support will be reviewed after six months. So, let’s reallocate this financial support to those who need it the most, as soon as possible.
