No one living in fuel poverty
Dear  Stephen

National Energy Action (NEA) has over 36 years’ experience of delivering solutions to fuel poverty with a UK reach. Our vision is ‘NO ONE LIVING IN FUEL POVERTY’ and our sole focus is working to deliver this aspiration.

We have designed, developed and delivered many exciting and innovative work programmes that have directly benefited millions of people through energy efficiency measures and through community engagement and awareness-raising programmes working in communities. In some instances, it has allowed us to lever other funds, build capacity and to improve and share understanding of solutions to fuel poverty and opportunities to better target assistance.
Training and qualifications
NEA also offers an extensive range of qualifications, training courses, e-learning and educational resources to cover key issues associated with fuel poverty, fuel debt, affordable warmth and delivering practical energy advice. Through this we help to enhance the quality of energy advice in the sector and beyond, ensuring that those who need it most can benefit from accurate help and assistance. We have experienced trainers based in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. NEA has developed a range of City & Guilds qualifications (level 2 and level 3) as well as several CPD-certified half-day and one-day courses, e-learning and education resources.
Education in schools and colleges … and at home
We are also passionate about promoting the efficient use of energy and achieving affordable warmth at home. We all know that children are influenced by the actions of others around them – but we also know that children with the right information can play an important part in

changing the behaviour of others in their homes. Through the delivery of our education resources, we aim to enhance the understanding of young people in schools, colleges and universities about keeping warm and safe at home, how they can use energy wisely and how they can reduce CO2 emissions. Our package of education resources is developed and delivered in schools, colleges and universities by an experienced teacher, covering a wide range of topics and using a variety of learning techniques.
