'Love Every Drop' - reducing water usage to protect out futures

Anglian Water is asking us all to use less water – and for very good reasons. All of us, as consumers, can play our part.

ThinkingFuel update – temporary change to heating oil deliveries

The panic buying witnessed at petrol stations across the UK, which has caused major delivery problems, is also affecting heating oil, with unprecedented demand and supply issues arising.  For the time being, instead of ThinkingFuel’s usual fortnightly collective ordering days, we are simply taking orders on a daily basis.

Looking for work during and after COVID

The VCSE sector has inevitably suffered its share of cutbacks during the pandemic in terms of loss of income and consequent pressure on staffing levels. But there’s hope – and support – for those having to seek fresh fields in 2021. If you, your colleagues or your service users are having to find new employment there are avenues of help available. 

Norfolk Energy Switch - helping West Norfolk consumers make real savings on their electricity and gas bills

Energy switching is not a new idea - but 50% of householders have not switched in the last three years. This means their supplier defaults them onto a ‘Standard Variable Tariff’, which typically is the most expensive. No-one should have to pay more than they need to. Collective energy switching uses the bargaining power of a large group of residents to get them a competitive offer.

The Small Charities Coalition has scrutinised the recent government budget to highlight some potential opportunities for charities.

ThinkingFuel: buying heating oil collectively – and helping the community at the same time

Many of you reading this will know about ThinkingFuel, our collective heating oil buying scheme. And you’ll know that the aim is to help support householders across Norfolk who depend on heating oil to heat their homes, and for whom the unregulated cost of heating oil is a constant worry.  

Who wants to save £254 on their energy bills?

At CAN we work closely with the Borough Council of King's Lynn and West Norfolk on the Big Switch and Save energy switching project.  There are three important news items about Big Switch and Save that we’d like to convey to West Norfolk residents, and we’d be grateful for the help of VCSE groups and organisations working in the area to help spread the word.
