Winter fuel grants are available again for UNISON members who are having difficulty meeting their heating bills.
The grants, which are available from the union’s independent welfare charity, There for You, are particularly timely after recent price rises by all the major energy companies. They consist of a one-off payment of up to £40.
The process will be very similar to previous years and an amount of money has been ring-fenced to support this initiative. This is a fixed sum and we are unable to make further grants once it is allocated.
Members who wish to apply for a grant can download an application form from the website.
Completed applications need to be sent to There for You, UNISON Centre, 130 Euston Road, London, NW1 2AY, to be received by Friday 28 February at the latest.
Branches and activists can also download a poster and flyer from the website to help promote the scheme. (NB: an earlier version of the poster and flyer gave a wrong web address for the There for You web pages)
