Repeat fuel vouchers totalled £2.2 million in additional support
June 20, 2023
To help ease financial pressure for our clients over winter, Fuel Bank Foundation provided additional support to people by issuing a repeat fuel voucher. Previous recipients of a voucher automatically received another without having to reapply.
"The repeat voucher scheme was born out of the fact that due to the higher energy prices the value of our fuel vouchers has reduced. Previously, a £49 voucher would, on average, provide up to ten days’ worth of gas and electricity, but now it’s less than half that."
He continued “Recognising this, we decided to automatically issue another voucher a week after the first was received to cover any potential shortfall in credit on the meter. This has been well received by clients, who have greatly appreciated the additional support.”
