This Friday 17th February is Fuel Poverty Awareness Day, a nationally recognised day to promote the issue of fuel poverty and the importance of ensuring vulnerable people are warm in their homes.
#FuelPovertyAwarenessDay is coordinated by our EFPC member, National Energy Action and intends to increase awareness of fuel poverty with a shocking 4.5 million UK households currently unable to live in a warm, dry home.
Support the cause by signing up to the Thunderclap here and help ensure that #FuelPovertyAwarenessDay reaches over 1 million people.
To coincide with #FuelPovertyAwarenessDay NEA is running The Nation’s Biggest Housewarming, many supporting organisations holding events, issuing messages of support, or holding bake sales. Find out how you and your organisation can get involved here.
Keep your eyes peeled for a range of new resources released on the day, including a new Steps to Affordable Warmth video resource, which provides hints and tips on how to afford to stay warm and healthy at home, and is designed to be shared at community events, with clients or publicised online.
