Our mission

Support Donate the rebate: National | Cornwall

Donate your rebate and help your
Cornish neighbours

Across the UK households are now receiving their energy rebates - this amounts to approximately £66 per month per house for the next 6 months. The rebate will reflect in energy bills and is not means-tested - meaning that every household in the UK will receive at least £400 back towards their cost of living. Those fortunate enough to own more than one home will also benefit from this, per household.

For some, this rebate will be a much needed addition to income at this time. For others who are more financially secure, it’s a nice bonus. But for the millions who have been plunged deep into poverty it’s literally the difference between heating or eating.

We call on those who can afford it, to consider donating all or part of their energy rebate to the charities that are supporting those who need it the most. Our vulnerable children, families and elderly in our communities - our neighbours, teachers, nurses and our loved-ones.

14.5 million people are currently living in poverty in the UK. Since 2008 the number of foodbank users increased from 26,000 to more than 2.56 million.
A 30% increasein homelessness has been predicted over the next two years.*

If we come together and #DonateTheRebate we can help level this up.

Can you help move millions from A to B ?
