Energy Champions


Energy Champions

A faith community based response to the energy crisis helping people reduce energy use, pay fuel bills and keep warm and healthy.

What are Energy Champions?

As trusted members of their own community’s energy champions will provide community members with basic information about keeping warm, help with understanding and paying energy bills and pointers towards local sources of help and support. They will help connect community members with other sources of other help available.
