Tackling Fuel Poverty

Fuel poverty affects more than 4.5 million households in UK and more than 25,000 households in Norfolk.  It can be caused by numerous factors: low income, poor heating and insulation and unaffordable energy prices. It can severely impact on health and wellbeing and  contributes to excess winter deaths and rising NHS costs.  Click here for more information on fuel poverty

British Gas Energy Trust

Community Action Norfolk has been received more than £377,000 from British Gas Energy Trust’s Healthy Home Fund to support its work on fuel poverty in Norfolk.  This will support the Warm and Well campaign, in partnership with Public Health, local authorities, CCGs and the voluntary sector, in developing a range of solutions for fuel poverty and staying warm in winter.  It will help provide additional support for home improvements for the most vulnerable, identify technologies which may support those in fuel poverty and improve health, provide training for hundreds of frontline staff and help to integrate work from across the county and in all sectors.

The funding will run throughout 2016.
