The Energy Redress Scheme is a voluntary initiative in the UK that provides funding to organisations for energy-related projects that benefit people in England, Scotland, and Wales. The scheme has awarded over £34 million to nearly 200 projects that support vulnerable energy customers and carbon emission reduction initiatives.

These established, community-focused organisations are well placed to provide local energy advice with a proven track record of working with and supporting North Birmingham residents.

In particular, the rise in household gas & electricity costs that affects millions of homes across the UK, with 1 in 5 households being thrown into fuel poverty across England & Wales this year alone.
