NEA: Warm Welcome!

Supporting expectant parents and families with young babies at risk in cold, damp homes and fuel poverty

  • Posted On: 14 June 2021

NEA:National Energy Action is a charity working with organisations who support low income, vulnerable families with babies and expectant parents who struggle to afford sufficient energy to ensure a warm and healthy home.

The arrival of a baby into a family already experiencing hardship can greatly increase the risk of fuel poverty.

Our Warm Welcome project offers advice sessions to help parents with babies and those expecting, manage energy and fuel bills to achieve affordable warmth.

We also offer free training for frontline support staff to raise awareness of fuel poverty, its impact on pregnancies, newborn babies and their families, and identify support available to them.

If you would like your organisation to get involed please get in touch with Diane Bland NEA Project Development Co-ordinator at diane.bland@nea.org.uk


Warm and well In North Yorkshire warns against perfect storm of fuel poverty due to potential benefit cuts and rising Energy Bills in April for North Yorkshire.

Warm and Well in North Yorkshire is warning that many more families may soon find themselves in heat or eat situations with the announcement by Ofgem that energy bills are to rise by £96 to £1,138 a year in April for households on standard or default tariffs. The price cap, set twice a year by the regulator, affects 11 million households in the UK who have never switched suppliers or whose discounted deals have expired. That accounts for about half of all UK households. The remainder are on so-called fixed deals, which will not be affected
