A turning point in the fight against fuel poverty in Wales
We believe that no one in Wales should have to live in a cold home. That’s why key organisations in Wales have come together to form a coalition, led by Consumer Focus Wales and NEA Cymru and developed a fuel poverty charter, to highlight the urgent action we believe is needed to eradicate fuel poverty in Wales.
We call for:
- A detailed action plan setting out how and when fuel poverty will be eradicated in Wales
- Support to all fuel poor households to stay warm- until fuel poverty is eradicated
- A co-ordinated and united approach across the statutory sector (at UK and Wales level) that involves partners from the private, voluntary and community sectors in Wales
We call on the Welsh Assembly Government to endorse the charter and to implement the policy priorities it sets out as a comprehensive package to ensure that every household in Wales can benefit from the comfort of a warm home.

The charter launched on the 20th October in Cardiff Bay. The event was attended by Jane Davidson AM, Minister for the Environment, Sustainability and Housing who accepted receipt of the charter on behalf of the Welsh Assembly Government. You can download a copy of our press release here.
