With millions of households bracing themselves for the hardest winter in living memory, Mick Whitley MP is asking residents in Birkenhead to have their say about the energy price crisis at a community forum on Thursday 10 November.
The forum will bring together local charities and residents to discuss the impact that rising energy prices are having on the town and how to respond to rising levels of fuel poverty.
Inviting local residents to the forum, the Member of Parliament for Birkenhead said, “This event is all about you – about your views and your experiences of rising energy prices” and described the session as a “unique opportunity to shape the actions that I take as your Member of Parliament in the coming weeks and months”.
The forum will also be an opportunity for residents to engage with charities that are working in the town and learn more about the support that’s available locally.
A number of organisations working on the frontlines of the cost-of-living crisis locally will be present, including Age UK Wirral, Citizens’ Advice Wirral, Wirral Foodbank, and Energy Project Plus.
The forum will take place from 11:30 to 1 PM in the Exmouth Suite of the Lauries Building, 142 Claughton Road, CH41 6EY.
Tickets can be booked by visiting: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/birkenhead-community-forum-tickets-407378569267 and the session is open to anyone living in the Birkenhead constituency.
