The main way individuals can help right now is to speak out about your experiences of fuel poverty.
We know this may be a daunting prospect, but the media genuinely want to hear your stories. Just fill in this short form and we will be in touch with more information: https://www.endfuelpoverty.org.uk/contact-us/speak-out-about-fuel-poverty/
You can also get involved or volunteer with one of our other members. This summer a new campaign “Warm This Winter” will also launch, with a range of ways people can help campaign on this issue. Speak out on social media using #warmthiswinter and follow the campaign on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
Organisations passionate about ending fuel poverty can join the Coalition (see information below).
The Coalition meets regularly to discuss the fight against fuel poverty, share knowledge, learn about best practice and plan campaigns.
Benefits of membership of the Coalition include sharing of information, best practice and policy updates on fuel poverty, co-ordinating action on areas of mutual interest, joint campaigns and assets for members to use.
We provide a pooled resource to enable MP engagement (including setting up meetings with members), media coverage and social media activity.
In the past we have met with the Energy Minister, engaged with MPs and candidates in the 2019 election, submitted evidence to the fuel poverty review, taken part in consultations and commented on the Budgets and Economic Statements as well as securing widespread media coverage.
To discuss membership, please email our co-ordinator Simon Francis on simon [dot] francis [at] campaigncollective [dot] org.
