National Energy Action (NEA)

Charity description

National Energy Action (NEA) logo
National Energy Action (NEA) is the national fuel poverty charity, working to ensure that everyone in England, Wales and Northern Ireland can afford to stay warm and healthy in their homes. There are currently around four million UK households in fuel poverty, struggling to heat their homes to the level needed to stay warm and comfortable.  We believe that everyone is entitled to live in a warm home regardless of their income, and work in partnership with Governments, energy industry, local authorities, and a huge number of other agencies to achieve this mission.

People in fuel poverty often have to face the heart-breaking choice between eating and heating their home; or going into debt.

Here are some examples of the suffering which we seek to eradicate:

“I find myself not eating at all just to keep it [the heating] on and keep it [the house] hot, I can go a couple of days without

“When my little boy was first born, he was premature, I
didn’t receive any of his benefits and had to keep going backwards and forwards to hospital all the time and keep the house warm. I was just living off a crisis loan; he got hypothermia it was so cold.”

By making a donation to NEA you can help to fund fuel poverty projects and support our campaigning activities. Funding our work will ensure that households, particularly those who are vulnerable, are helped to live in homes which are warmer, healthier, and affordable to heat. Thank you for your support.
