Surviving Winter is a campaign to encourage those who do not need their winter fuel payment and members of the wider public, to donate to the campaign and help those who are suffering from fuel poverty in our local community.
With over 33% of homes in the North East considered to be in fuel poverty, the Community Foundation Tyne & Wear and Northumberland is launching a campaign to encourage those who do not need their winter fuel payment and members of the wider public, to donate to the Surviving Winter campaign and help those who are suffering from fuel poverty in our local community.

Vice President of the Community Foundation Kate Adie OBE is supporting the Suviving Winter campaign. She said:
“We are delighted at the fantastic response that we have received so far for our Surviving Winter Campaign but we still have a long way to go to make a real difference. We are continuing to urge those that are in receipt of the winter fuel payment but do not need it and the wider public to donate to our Surviving Winter campaign to support older and vulnerable people in the local area this winter.”
