Help us eliminate cold homes
Every day our energy advisors work hard to save people energy and money. They also offer crisis support.
As energy prices increased, we heard from more and more people struggling to afford warmth, often having to make tough decisions between heating or eating.
If you can, here’s how a donation can help
We will use your donation where it’s needed most to help people in fuel poverty.

We provide emergency practical and emotional support to people in complex situations, resolving immediate crisis and giving them the mental space to engage with our energy advice. This helps avoid future challenges.

Insights into our advice service
You can help people like Linda and Andy. A hard-working couple in their golden years who were without a working boiler or hot water. They relied on a boiled kettle to provide their basic needs like washing and keeping warm.
Despite receiving a modest state and private pension, it wasn’t enough to fix their boiler and provide them with enough warmth to keep them healthy. Unfortunately, both Linda and Andy have severe medical conditions that make living in a cold home especially uncomfortable (at best) and dangerous at worst.
Our advisors organised practical and emotional support. Thanks to their involvement, Linda and Andy now have a new heating system, more financial freedom and a better quality of living. Read their full story.
