Voices from the frontline


National Energy Action works to help households by tackling fuel poverty. The energy crisis has pushed more people into desperate situations through increasingly high energy bills. This is coupled with millions living in homes with poor energy efficiency. The UK has some of the least efficient housing stock in Europe.

Frontline voices

In the UK, 5.6 million households are in fuel poverty. This leaves people to make impossible choices – to go cold, go hungry, fall into debt, or even all three. These are real lives being ruined and part of our work is to highlight the devastating impact high energy bills and poor energy efficiency can have, especially amid the cost of living crisis. Here, people with lived experience of fuel poverty reveal what it is really like.
