Tackling food and energy costs

Tackling food and energy costs

This includes £100,000 to Marches Energy Advice to help foodbank clients with the cost of energy and £100,000 for Foundation Derbyshire to carry on supporting local food banks.

Marches Energy Advice currently runs the Warmer Derby and Derbyshire energy advice and support service which includes a free Derbyshire-wide dedicated fuel poverty helpline on 0800 677 1332.

The funding will enable MEA to carry on their work with food banks – ensuring that people who use them are supported with heating costs when in crisis.
