EAS develops and delivers projects linked to domestic energy and the alleviation of fuel poverty. Often this is done with support from the private sector.
Some projects provide practical support for people struggling to keep warm at home. Other initiatives support advisors, front line workers and a wide range of organisations (such as housing providers) enabling them to give effective and appropriate energy-related advice and information to their clients. Some are designed to provide support via EAS member organisations and other partners. Projects usually have a particular end focus on people who are vulnerable.
