Day of Action on Fuel Poverty


As the nights draw in and more and more people face a difficult winter, we’re uniting to show that it doesn’t have to be this way - the solutions exist and we’ve known what they are for a long time.

Join us on 3rd December for a UK-wide Day of Action on Fuel Poverty, as we demand action from this government to keep everyone warm this winter.

Why now?

The Day of Action on Fuel Poverty will contribute to a flurry of action on fuel poverty at the start of December and immediately follow Fuel Poverty Awareness Day on December 2nd. We’re working with groups and communities to put on events and actions in villages, towns and cities up and down the country. We’re planning a huge display of people power to show we have the solutions to the energy crisis and they need to be implemented now.

On 3rd December, 6 weeks after the new Prime Minister has taken office, we’ll come together and demand solutions to the energy and cost of living crisis. Across the UK, we will demand the Government provides:

1) Emergency support now: Providing a new package of financial support to people who without urgent action will be on the front-line of poverty this winter.
2) Help to upgrade homes: Launching a new, properly-funded programme of home upgrades and insulation across the UK to bring down bills and prevent energy waste.
3) Cheap energy: More than triple the amount of renewable energy in the UK by 2030, including wind and solar generated in harmony with nature, so that we can permanently lower bills.
4) Free us from oil and gas: Stop approving new oil and gas fields so we can escape our dependence on volatile fossil fuels.

Here's how to take part

Events and activities will be distributed around the country showing the breadth of demand for change. Actions and events can look like anything you would like them to.

They can range from a small gathering of friends and family to discuss the issues we’re facing, a stall in your town centre or an event in a local community hall or park. You could share leaflets and information about the campaign and how people can stay warm this winter, it could be a visual stunt making the most of your creative talents, or a demonstration or town hall event where folk can come and hear people speak. You decide what will work for you and your community. Whatever it is, however big or small, it will help spread the word and make it clear that we demand change. 

As much as possible we’re encouraging groups to work together, so if you see an event in your area already on the list below then get in touch with that group to see how you can help. You can add your event to the list by registering it via the form below.
