The Energy Action Southampton project is an 18 month project aiming to reduce the levels of fuel poverty in the Southampton area through a variety of activities. The project builds on previous experience, (in particular a pilot project called ‘DIY Energy Action’ which was delivered by the Environment Centre in early 2012), and will target young families in priority areas.
The project aims to tackle fuel poverty by helping people develop DIY skills including installing draught proofing for window, doors and floors, reflective radiator panels and curtain lining, supply DIY materials to assist with these measures, provide tailored impartial energy efficiency advice, facilitate the update of existing help through grants etc and signposting to appropriate agencies in order to maximise household incomes.
