CAMPAIGN: Fight goes on for paper bills

editorial image

The Keep Me Posted Campaign, which I chair, is celebrating its fifth birthday this July.

We have campaigned on behalf of readers and consumers everywhere for their right to choose, without financial penalty, paper bills and statements as it helps them manage their finances more easily, or if they can’t go online.

A coalition of more than 120 charities, trades unions and consumer groups support our campaign.

The bottom line is that we award the Keep Me Posted ‘Best Practice’ Mark of Distinction to organisations that promise to do the right thing by not forcing their customers online or forcing them to pay to stay offline.

I would like to say thank you to your readers for their support over the last five years.

If they would like to help even more could they write to their MP asking if he/she supports our campaign and will sign EDM 909 ‘Keep Me Posted’, and write to their bank, their energy supplier and their phone company and ask them if they are signed up to Keep Me Posted and if not, why not?

And on behalf of your readers, may I wish the Keep Me Posted campaign a very happy fifth birthday.

Judith Donovan CBE,

Keep Me Posted
