Our campaigns

United for Warm Homes campaign

Soaring gas prices mean millions of us are worried that we won’t be able to keep our homes warm this winter. Meanwhile, oil and gas companies continue to make record-breaking profits.

We have the solutions to cut bills and emissions. But we need the government to act now.

Across the country, grassroots groups are forming partnerships with others in their communities to help protect our most vulnerable from the impacts of rising bills and demand the right to a warm home.

If you and your group would like to get involved and help end fuel poverty, head to United for Warm Homes and sign up to the campaign.

Climate Action Plan for Councils

Councils up and down the country have declared climate emergencies. But what happens next?  

We need councils to turn their political promises in to concrete action by adopting a climate action plan, and transforming their communities into fairer, more sustainable places for generations to come.

To help get them started, we’ve created a template Climate Action Plan for councils in England and Wales. Find out how you can help get that plan in place.
