Open letter from concerned Wandsworth Charities to Cllr Caddy

Seven Wandsworth Charities are concerned for their residents: Citizens Advice Wandsworth, Little Village, Wandsworth Foodbank, Katherine Low Settlement, South West London Law Centres, Wandsworth Cares’ Centre & Thinking Works.

Wandsworth charities concerned that local residents are being left out in the cold, as time running out for Council to distribute £2m winter hardship fund. With the cost of essentials rising at the fastest rate in 30 years, the news of £700/year fuel bill increase is particularly chilling for local people and families on the lowest incomes in Wandsworth.

Throughout the winter, our seven charities have supported thousands of Wandsworth residents whose household budgets are already stretched to breaking point. Families who can put the heating on or buy enough food; or pay their rent or top up their gas or electricity meter – but not both.
