Petition Provide funding for those families who will struggle to afford school uniforms and equipment
The Energy regulator, OfGem, announced that this October, the energy price cap would be rising to £3,549 per year for dual fuel for an average household. This could affect people severally but it will hit families especially hard especially if their children's new equipment and uniforms will cost upwards of £126. The government should act and provide funding for the poorest earning families who will really struggle.
