Tell Truss: Take action on Energy Costs in Northern Ireland

Image of Liz Truss, Prime Minister of the UK.

Take action to help people in Northern Ireland pay their energy bills.

Why is this important?

Liz Truss is promising to act quickly on energy prices, but because the energy market in Northern Ireland is so different it’s far from certain what that will mean for us.

The National Institute of Economic and Social Research has predicted that Northern Ireland could experience a 67% increase in extreme poverty, the highest in the UK by far. And with 66% of homes here using home-heating oil as their fuel source, as opposed to 5% in England, Scotland and Wales, we’re going to need a solution tailored to our needs.
