We are an independent charity specialising in the delivery of practical, creative and effective solutions to fuel poverty, promoting energy reduction and accelerating the uptake of renewable energy solutions.
Last year MEA supported nearly 4000 people around fuel poverty and energy efficiency. Over 40% of people advised via our telephone service had health conditions, such as osteoarthritis, COPD and heart disease, which made them particularly vulnerable to the effects of a cold home, This included Mr B, a vulnerable widower and parent, who was struggling to make ends meet. He received support accessing funding for a new boiler, getting on to a suitable tariff and claiming the Warm Home Discount.
We drew down over £350,000 of new capital funding and in the process will be saving Mr B and others over £380,000 on their energy bills. We partnered with over 120 organisations to achieve this, ran 98 events, trained over 480 staff from other organisations and delivered more than 300 home visits.
