Creating a Path out of Fuel Poverty

 

A WORD ABOUT US

Community Asset Project is Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) with the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR). The Registration Number is SC045758.
We set out to be the UK’s leading fuel poverty charity dedicated to eradicating fuel poverty through a range of activities which includes research and analysis into the causes and extent of fuel poverty; higher level strategic campaigning and lobbying; working in local communities and developing national qualifications to improve the quality of energy advice.

 

We are also aware that some community in Scotland have played more passive than active role both in the policy making and implementation in Scotland. To reverse the trends, it became very imperative that we organise confidence building activities geared towards empowering the community, developing and incentivising their entrepreneurial skills, encouraging social engagement and cultural interface with all community which is an essential ingredients in strengthening community harmony and respect for one another.

 

ABOUT

Creating a Path out of Fuel Poverty

Community Asset Project knows that strength not only lies in our words, but in our actions as well.

We have set out on a mission- 

To relieve poverty by promoting the efficient use of energy (including energy for heating purposes) among persons who are in necessitous circumstances including (without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing) those in such circumstances who are elderly, or whose housing conditions are unsatisfactory to advance public education about all aspects of energy conservation and the efficient use of energy.


To relieve poverty through the co-ordination, delivery, support of projects and services which address fuel poverty and its associated conditions and symptoms.


The promotion of equality and diversity- To eliminate all forms of policy that seeks to encourage and promote discrimination through the right advocacy and campaigning for social justice through education and public enlightenment.


The advancement of citizenship or community development by promoting and proactively encouraging the development of young people assets (both tangible and intangible), and to seek to transform derelict properties/space through community partnership to good use (to give it back a purpose for all local people to enjoy) for the benefit of the community. We will not quit until our job is complete.


Founded in 2016, Community Asset Project inspires action, serves and supports the communities. We’re driven by a firm belief in the power of humanity, and we will do anything it takes to make an impact.
