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.

Do you want to help your clients save money
on their energy bills?


Fuel poverty charity National Energy Action (NEA) Cymru is offering free energy advice sessions to support your work in Wales, to help ensure that your clients/tenants can afford to live in a warm, dry home.

We can offer free advice sessions to local groups and organisations who are holding community events or have regular group meetings/coffee mornings. We have 3 types of tailored energy advice sessions available this Summer and Autumn.

Topics can include:

  • how to get the best energy deal (tariffs, switching and payment options)
  • billing and meter queries (including credit, prepay and smart)
  • top tips on how to save energy in the home
  • how to use common heating controls
  • dealing with damp and condensation
  • advice on dealing with energy debt
  • accessing grants and schemes available (e.g. Priority Service Register, Warm Home Discount, Nest)
Session options include:

Community Events

If you’re holding a community event aimed at low-income or vulnerable households, NEA Cymru can attend and host a stall. We can provide energy efficiency, fuel debt and general energy advice and access to assistance schemes, where applicable.

Energy Awareness Workshops

If you run a regular group, coffee morning, tenant meeting or the like, NEA Cymru can run an interactive and engaging group workshop to provide practical energy advice. Workshops can last from 45 mins – 2 hours (with breaks and refreshments) and be tailored to suit the needs of your clients. Activities can include energy-related quizzes, games and discussion.

Bill Management Surgeries
Alternatively, if you run a regular group, coffee morning, tenant meeting or the like, NEA Cymru can host a bill management surgery, to provide one-to-one, confidential and impartial advice to your clients. This can run alongside your regular meeting and work on a drop-in basis.
