Situation

The North East has one of the highest levels of fuel poverty in the country, meaning many are having to choose between heating their home, putting food on the table or buying their children a suitable winter coat. CDCF aims to raise £12,000 to support people in County Durham & Darlington having to make these incredibly difficult decisions.

Solution

The money raised will be awarded as grants to local organisations and community groups who have projects they know support those most in need during the Christmas period. These may be projects which have been successful in previous years, or those which aim to tackle new challenges. Winter relief packs provided to those in desperate need, or luncheon clubs to help tackle social isolation are examples of what you might help fund.
