The AMAZE project is based in Brighton and is requesting funding to help tackle fuel poverty among households with disabled children. The project will provide a holistic approach to alleviating fuel poverty with a focus on income and energy efficiency. The project will be run by one member of staff and 10 volunteers who will be trained in benefits checks, energy efficiency advice and savings advice. The project expects to generate £800K extra income per year for families with disabled children. The aim is also to reduce each family’s fuel costs on average by £200 per year. The project will run for 3 years.
