Rural Homelessness

If people can’t afford to pay their energy bills, they are pushed towards homelessness – which is happening to far too many in areas like Mid Norfolk.

Areas like ours are hit approximately 150% harder by energy price rises – which is why I have assembled and am leading a team of 50 rural MPs to push for targeted rural relief in the Budget today and beyond.

See the above video I filmed yesterday with Marie-Claire, CEO of the Hopestead Charity doing great work in Mid Norfolk.
