Faith group joins the EBR Alliance

April 2nd, 2014

The Energy Bill Revolution, a major alliance that consists of MPs, unions, businesses, charities, think tanks, energy providers, builders, young person and disability organisations has now been joined by a faith group. Church Action on Poverty campaigns on national and grassroots social justice issues.

Niall Cooper the Director said:

“Church Action on Poverty supports the Energy Bill Revolution campaign because fuel bills are an increasing worry for tens of thousands of people already struggling to make ends meet across the UK.  We see the impact this has on the people we work with everyday, not just in terms of the impact this has on their ability to keep themselves and their families warm, but on their household budgets more generally, and on their physical and mental health and well-being.”

Ed Matthew, Director of the Energy Bill Revolution alliance said:

“It’s wonderful to have Church Action on Poverty backing the Energy Bill Revolution.  Fuel poverty is a major driver of poverty overall.  An infrastructure programme to super-insulate our homes can deliver one of the most important lasting solutions to tackle poverty in this country.  Together we’ll crack this crisis”
