Our work is in Shropshire, Herefordshire, southern Staffordshire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Telford & Wrekin.
Vulnerable householders being supported to live with dignity at home, where cold doesn’t affect physical and mental health, and energy bills aren’t a worry.
Well-informed householders making their homes more energy efficient, warmer and cheaper to run, producing significantly less carbon and generating their own power.
Promoting trusted local companies that are able to install energy saving measures that work, and which use a local workforce, thereby helping to retain money in our local economies.
Encouraging communities to work together to share knowledge and learning to create more vibrant and resilient places.
Climate change will impact most on the vulnerable. We want to see a more significant leadership role from Local Authorities, preventative health organisations, faith networks, colleges and NGOs, able to influence, train and inspire in our shift to a low carbon society.
