The Benefits Of Community Action:
Individuals building ongoing and permanent relationships.
A common vision and a sense of belonging for all residents.
Enabling communities in decline to rebuild themselves.
Enabling Sustained Community Innovation & Cooperation
We developed an innovative model that enabled key sections of communities to come together and form coherent, reliable networks that could work alongside authorities to tackle their own local fuel poverty challenges, using a cost effective, sustainable and proven framework. Coming together gets things moving!
By supporting community networks comprised of organisations, local authorities and businesses, we enabled teams of skilled, committed stakeholders to diagnose the challenges specific to their area and tackle fuel poverty together, sustainably.
Community action is not about big budgets or complexity; the CAP core principles were about bringing people from all walks of life together to work on practical initiatives and activities that promote simple, but highly effective measures to raise awareness of the problem, transmit practical frontline knowledge and share advice on relevant topics around fuel poverty to as many people as possible.
