The Community Action Partnership was a programme delivered by National Energy Action (NEA) and British Gas in partnership with councils across the UK, aimed at bringing affordable energy and improvement to the lives of residents through an innovative community action framework, equipping them with the key tools and guidance needed to sustainably and collaboratively tackle fuel poverty.
This website showcases some of CAP's projects over the last two years, as well as making our research and resources open to the public to download and learn from.

Tackling UK Fuel Poverty
The CAP project supported community stakeholders tackling fuel poverty across eight key localities; Cardiff, Enfield, Barking and Dagenham, Liverpool, Greater Manchester, Northamptonshire, Walsall and the north east.
Each area faced its own unique challenges requiring varied solutions, so we used our experience to design an innovative community action support framework that could be adapted for any community to help tackle the root causes and alleviate the symptoms of fuel poverty.

What Outcomes Did CAP Produce?
Achieving outputs is a valuable measure of a project’s journey towards its overall objectives. However, understanding the impact the programme has on householders, key partners and other stakeholders gives a much clearer view of the difference it has made.
