First ever Fuel Bank Opens in Brent
The Trussell Trust and energy supplier Npower has launched the first ever Fuel Bank in Brent. The scheme gives foodbank users, with pre-payment meters, vouchers for gas or electricity, so they do not have to choose between ‘heating and eating’.
Because the scheme gives people around two weeks’ worth of energy, the value of the voucher will fluctuate between the winter and summer months: from April to the end of October the value will be £30 and this will increase to £49 from 1st November to 31st March.
The scheme is for clients with a valid Brent Foodbank voucher, who could be eligible to receive the credit which they can use to repay emergency credit and top up their gas and electricity meter. This enables households that have run out of energy to get the power back on within a few hours and keep the lights and heating on for around two weeks.

Innisfree Housing Association in partnership with Irish in Britain and Age Exchange created a reminiscence project with older members of the Irish community in Harlesden, North London. The film ‘Carnaby Street, The Kings Road And The Dancehalls: London Was Your First Stop’ celebrates the lives and experiences of a group of immigrants who moved to North London from Ireland from the 1950s to the 1980s.

I feel like one of the lucky ones. I would probably be in prison if it wasn’t for Innisfree.
