Online resource hub for UK community stakeholders of any level.
Our aim for this site is to allow free access to resources, knowledge and contacts to enable people, no matter what their experience level, challenge the issues of fuel poverty in the areas they work and live in. Assisting them to make sustainable changes in their communities.
Of course, you can dive straight into the Resources and Downloads section of the site but you may feel a little guidance may be in order. This is your site and we want you to get everything you need from it but to start you off we have a few suggestions for you depending on which area you identify with.
