The National Energy Action Community Action Awards aim to reward projects throughout England which demonstrate excellence in the field of tackling fuel poverty and improving energy efficiency.
Held jointly with the Department of Energy & Climate Change and British Gas, entries are accepted from community groups, charities, local authorities and third sector organisations.
Winners will receive up to £3,500 to develop or enhance a project which demonstrates excellence in one of the following areas: community action to tackle fuel poverty across all vulnerable groups, community action to tackle hard to reach groups (in fuel poverty) and community action to tackle fuel poverty in rural areas.
Winners will also receive additional financial and practical support to run a community engagement event to showcase their project and share best practice with others. It will run in two phases, with phase 1 closing on the 31 October 2013.
