Tackling fuel poverty in Camden

Camden Council is supporting Fuel Poverty Awareness Day on Friday 29 November, a nationwide campaign led by National Energy Action to raise awareness of fuel poverty and the solutions.

To mark the day, the council will host a drop-in session at Camden’s Think & Do community space for climate and eco action, where ‘Green Doctors’ will be on hand to give advice and tips for saving energy and keeping warm in your home this winter.

Take a look at our short video which outlines the main causes and effects of fuel poverty and what we are doing to tackle the issue in Camden.

Keeping well and warm at home

Keeping your home warm over the colder months can be difficult, especially if you are worried about high energy bills. The council has a wide range of advice and support services to help keep you well and warm in your home.

Call the free-phone Green Camden Helpline for advice and tips on saving energy, changing fuel tariff/ suppliers, dealing with fuel debt and more. You can call the Green Camden Helpline for free on 0800 801 738 (Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm).

Here are a few simple ways you can keep warm and start saving money:

  • Check to see if a cheaper fuel tariff is available (the average saving is £200)
  • Set your heating and hot water controls to only come on when needed.
  • Close your curtains at night to keep the heat in your home.
  • Keep internal doors closed to reduce draughts.
