Energy prices will rise for millions of people across the UK in April, at a time when finances are squeezed due to either the loss of work from Covid-19 or not receiving full salary whilst furloughed. 

Regulator Ofgem said the price cap for default domestic energy deals would be raised to cover suppliers' extra costs (What are these "Extra Cost's" and why during this well published economic slump we currently face is Ofgem & The UK Government allowing this to happen now?) 

The typical gas and electricity customer is likely to see their bill go up by £96 to £1,138 a year.

Charities say the timing is a "double whammy", coming at a time when the government's Covid-related support schemes are due to be wound down.

The government needs to step in and protect the all of the the people in the UK especially when some are struggling to feed their children and keep their families warm.
