Climate Action Leeds Fuel Poverty Awareness Day 2023 – SpringAid in the Community!
November 20, 2023

Today, Thursday 30 November 2023 is National Energy Action’s Fuel Poverty Awareness Day (FPAD). In commemoration of events marking the Fuel Poverty Awareness Day 2023, our team empowered residents at the Friends of Hunslet Moor Community Hub, South Leeds, raising awareness on effective and efficient ways on how they could manage their energy usage at home through positive actions and behavioural change methodologies. 

The charity National Energy Action (NEA) has estimated that the total number of households across the UK in fuel poverty increased from around 4 million in summer 2020 to 6.7 million in October 2022 and they expect it to reach 7.5 million housholds April 2023. This is more than double the official estimate for England. By remembering to switch off appliances at the socket, using less hot water or install an energy efficient shower, switch to energy saving light bulbs, using your tumble dryer less, take shorter showers or even install a smart meter – and amongst others, can all make such a huge difference to the size of our bills and reduce our carbon footprint and impact on the environment. Small changes, huge benefits!
