Warm Homes Campaign Award winners announced!
Winners of the 2017/18 Warm Homes Campaign have now been announced!
The Warm Homes Campaign is NEA’s annual winter initiative, focusing on the need for people to be able to stay warm in their homes. The campaign raises awareness amongst both politicians and members of the public of the problem of fuel poverty and the action needed to be taken at a policy level; as well as the help and support available locally for those struggling to heat their homes. It also highlights key messages around gas and electricity safety in the home.
The campaign itself takes place from Monday 22 November up to Fuel Poverty Awareness Day on Friday 23 February 2018.
The Warm Homes Campaign Awards provide grants of £500 to enable a number of not-for-profit and statutory organisations based in England and Wales with the funds needed to support relevant events and activities taking place during the campaign period. This may include launches of strategies and action plans; energy efficiency awareness days; advice sessions; project visits by VIPs; and other innovative ways of communicating the issues around fuel poverty and energy efficiency locally. Successful organisations will be expected to promote their events to the local media as part of the campaign, as well as engage the support of MPs and other local elected representatives.
