That is okay. You do not have to.
You can write your own letter using Action Network.
We will show you how and give you some ideas.
Before you go to The Action Network, think about what you want to write.
We want MPs to know how rising energy costs are making life hard for Disabled people.
We want the Government to know that they are not doing enough.
You can talk about how energy costs mean you are having problems. Or how you have had to make changes.
Some people cannot afford to use their heating anymore. Now they are getting ill.
This is one idea.
Some people cannot go out in their electric wheelchairs or scooters as much. This is because they cannot afford to charge them.
This is another idea.
Some people cannot afford to have hot baths anymore. So then they are in pain.
