• THE WI has created a cost of living hub to help members who are worried about the cost of keeping warm this winter.
• It can be accessed at: My WI | Cost of living hub ( and will be regularly updated with help and advice.*

The WI has also joined the Warm this Winter campaign, a cross-sector campaign combining poverty and environment groups to add our voice to the calls for emergency and longer-term measures to tackle the cost of living crisis.
NFWI chairman Ann Jones said: “The huge leap in the rise of the energy price cap will cause sleepless nights for the millions of people who face being unable to pay their energy bills this winter.
“We need urgent action from the government to stop the cost of living crisis from becoming a catastrophe this winter.
“We would urge the Government to work quickly to lead us away from the UK’s broken energy system towards cleaner, greener and cheaper forms of energy.”

*Perhaps online members could relay important points from the hub to those without internet access, so that they don’t miss out on information that may be of use to them.
