Families in Fuel Crisis

Making sure families in fuel poverty can access the help they need.

Project duration: September 2016 to August 2017

Families in Fuel Crisis targeted specific areas in the South West that have high levels of deprivation, and focussed particularly on households with small children who are in or at risk of fuel poverty. The Centre for Sustainable Energy team provided wide range of support was provided, including:

“Events in the local community are a great way to give face-to-face advice in a familiar setting,” explained Kate Thomas, CSE’s Project Manager.”We also ran a number of events in schools targeted at pupils. This is a really effective way to get children engaged in energy issues and to promote our services to parents.”

The project worked in partnership with other organisations to run numerous outreach events in schools and food banks. The small geographical focus allowed for targeted and highly relevant support, tailored to the needs of local people and the issues they face.

Families in Fuel Crisis is funded by Scottish Power Energy People Trust.
