Heat Heroes Awards 2017
The Heat Heroes Awards launched in September this year and aim to recognise individuals who have gone ‘above and beyond’ to help people living in fuel poverty in their local community in England and Wales. This could be through work or through voluntary activities outside of the workplace. The scheme is run by National Energy Action in partnership with ScottishPower.
Anyone was able to make a make a nomination, however only representatives from not-for-profit organisations including local authorities, health and social care agencies, voluntary and statutory agencies and community groups were eligible to be nominated and named as Heat Heroes.
Entries are now closed. The awards ceremony will take place in the House of Commons, hosted by Baroness Maddock of Christchurch, Vice President of NEA. It will take place in early February 2018.
