Water Poverty

Water Poverty

NEA is proud to be working with Northumbrian Water Group (NWG) on an innovative programme which aims to eradicate water poverty by 2030.

The programme aims to establish an industry acknowledged definition of water poverty, and, understanding the links between water and fuel poverty, explore regional and national partnerships and projects to deliver positive outcomes for customers struggling with their utility bills.



“How do we achieve zero water poverty by 2030?”
