Get involved

Fuel Poverty Action are a grassroots campaign made up of people fed up with mammoth fuel bills, cold homes and climate crisis. We need you to get involved!

At the moment, Fuel Poverty Action is primarily based in London. Our London group meets on a regular fortnightly basis. All are welcome at our meetings. If you’re interested in attending, contact us using the details below.

Our group is directed by the collective decisions made by all members of the group, meaning that we’re driven by the ideas and passions of everyone. We aim to minimise hierarchies in our organising and don’t have leader figures.

We’re in contact with other groups throughout the UK organising on fuel poverty, such as Tidal in Leeds, Manchester Climate Action and Edinburgh Affordable Energy Campaign. Get in touch with these groups if you’re looking to organise in these areas. If you’re interested in setting up a new local group where you live, email fuelpovertyaction@gmail.com and we can offer advice and support. 

We’ve recently begun a community organising project in Haringey. The aim is to find out what Haringey residents think about rising fuel bills and what action they’d like to take, with a view to supporting collective community-led action. If you like, you’re welcome to get involved with this project without coming to our regular group meetings. Get in touch to let us know you’re interested.

Finally, we’re always in need of more funds to cover the costs of our campaigning. Please consider offering a donation if you can. To find out how, click here.

  1. Hi everyone,

    Really glad I’ve found somewhere with other people in similar situations.

    The only way I’ve managed to combat the cold this winter so far with rising energy costs is by using the candles and flower pot trick. I dont know if any of you have seen it? about 8p a day to heat a room which is far better in my eyes and at least those crafty buggers at the energy companies wont receive your money. Heres the link anyways http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brHqBcZqNzE . If anyone else knows of anyways we can all help each other post them! Far to many cold people out there !!!

  2. I am appalled that greedy high income MP’s are enforcing and sanctioning austerity cuts measures and job losses to a majority of it;s electorate and so making the cost of paying high cost energy bills impossible whilst at the same time they are claiming on expenses the cost of their energy bills . The Daily Mirror reports one MP in particular has claimed £5,822: . It is quite apparent we are not as they proclaim “all in this together ”

    What about a petition to Downing Street ?

  3. Why don’t you start a viral campaign – right now – to get people to write to their utility companies to inform them that they will not be paying their next bill until the price increase is scrapped. You could easily get 5 million customers to do this over the next few weeks. The Big 6, big as they are, would not be able to cut people off or force payment through the courts for at least a month, and the immediate threat to their cashflow would force them to back down. The consumers have all the power, they just need to flex their muscles.

    You never know, even Ed and Caroline might come out and support it.

  6. Interested in FPAG protests in London, and/or Surrey ( -yes, really! – ), so please add my email address to your circulation. My passion is home generation of renewable energy (e.g. on social housing). I am particularly interested in the Big Six’s role in bending UK energy policy at DECC, so renewables get squeezed out (“50 Big Six secondees working full-time within government”, as Caroline Lucas revealed in Nov 2011). Big need for more unity at grass-roots between FPAG and UK pro-renewables groups! Read Herman Scheer’s 2007 “Energy Autonomy”, (Earthspan Books) on how Germany’s Big 4, including E-on & RWE, twisted Germany’s energy ministry around their little fingers… until democratic protest, – coupled with spread of renewable energy – broke their influence !
