Norfolk Warm Homes - reducing energy costs for homeowners and landlords

All Norfolk’s local authorities – county and district - are working in partnership to deliver heating and insulation grants to the county’s residents.

'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.

Saving water and the environment with a smart water meter

Norwich is the focus of a campaign to encourage consumers to use less water, to help protect the environment as well as save on water bills.

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. 

Support for carers to attend COVID-19 vaccinations

Carers, and those dependent upon them, face many additional difficulties and obstacles during the pandemic. Specialist support organisations across Norfolk have responded to the need as follows. Please help spread the word as appropriate. 

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.

Dereham Men's Shed - the road to becoming a charity

There are definite benefits to registering as a charity, not least of which is credibility when applying to potential funders. Making your case to the Charity Commission needs to be done in an organised and planned way. 

Heating oil, fuel poverty… and a request

Many Norfolk households and businesses in off-gas areas are burdened with the added element of the unregulated prices of heating oil. A few weeks ago we asked for your help in raising awareness of ThinkingFuel, our collective heating oil buying scheme. And we’d like to say a big thank you to those of who have published the article we supplied or have shared posters and flyers. If you haven’t already shared the message, we should be most grateful if you would. Details of how you can help can be found below.

Winter + energy bills + COVID-19 constraints = potential fuel poverty crisis

A new report warns of a difficult winter ahead for fuel poor households across the UK in the coming winter, as a potent combination of higher energy use resulting from staying at home for longer is mixed with reductions in income. It is estimated that 25,000 households across Norfolk experience some level of fuel poverty. CAN is committed to tackling these issues and supports a range of initiatives across the county.
