National Energy Action (NEA) is the national charity seeking to end fuel poverty. 

The Warm Homes Campaign is NEA’s annual winter initiative, raising awareness to both politicians and members of the public, of the problem of fuel poverty and the action needed to be taken, as well as the help and support available locally for those struggling to heat their homes.

The Campaign launched on 5 November, with a Parliamentary launch in the House of Commons on 24 November which will continue until 26 February – Fuel Poverty Awareness Day.

The Warm Homes Campaign Awards will provide grants of £500 to enable 40 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.
