To mark the Trust’s 20th anniversary, we will be convening charities and stakeholders across England, Scotland, and Wales to discuss ‘Alleviating the detrimental impact of fuel poverty – what works, what happens next’.

These discussions will take place at roundtable panel events held in partnership with funded charities and social enterprises from May until November this year. Our aim for the roundtables is to identify earlier and new interventions to help more people avoid the detrimental impact of fuel poverty, generate meaningful learnings from the 20th anniversary programme to inform our future funding approach, and facilitate conversations and share knowledge that can influence change needed to address the cause and effect of fuel poverty. Each roundtable will focus on a different disadvantaged group.

The intent is that we will capture information and learnings on the complex challenges facing several groups of people identified most at risk of fuel poverty throughout the events, culminating in a final published report.
