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. 

ThinkingFuel: buying heating oil collectively and combating fuel poverty

At CAN we believe in fair outcomes for all Norfolk residents and we support services that meet the economic, health, and social needs of individuals in their communities. We are asking for your help in raising awareness of ThinkingFuel, our collective heating oil buying scheme that helps combat fuel poverty.
