Free Energy Advice Sessions now available

National Energy Action (NEA) Cymru is the Welsh arm of the national fuel poverty charity NEA which campaigns to ensure everyone can enjoy the comforts of a warm and safe home.  In Wales over 150,000 households and more than 300,000 people are currently living in fuel poverty, living in damp, cold homes which are damaging their health and wellbeing. 

We currently have funding to run some free energy advice sessions for low income and vulnerable clients who may struggle to afford to heat their homes. 

Would you be able to circulate the information below about the free energy sessions to your members. 

Many thanks in anticipation.
