Online resource hub for UK community stakeholders of any level.
Our aim for this site is to allow free access to resources, knowledge and contacts to enable people, no matter what their experience level, challenge the issues of fuel poverty in the areas they work and live in. Assisting them to make sustainable changes in their communities.
Of course, you can dive straight into the Resources and Downloads section of the site but you may feel a little guidance may be in order. This is your site and we want you to get everything you need from it but to start you off we have a few suggestions for you depending on which area you identify with.
Getting the support of the most senior person in your organisation will help you integrate fuel poverty into everyday work.
A well informed, motivated 'energy champion' can help you reach far more people than you might expect.
Carefully manage expectations from the offset.
Research the local policy and strategic landscape – identify where benefits could be galvanised through fuel poverty work and utilise this to encourage engagement with the services/support being offered.
Recruit a champion – Getting a senior champion or political stakeholder on board can support your efforts and mobilise others to take action.
