The National Right to Fuel Campaign (NRFC) was established in 1975 with an objective to campaign to end fuel poverty in the UK and secure a warm, physician dry, well-lit home for all, regardless of income and location.
The NRFC developed and successfully campaigned for the introduction of the current fuel poverty definition, in 2001. With a membership comprising of voluntary organisations, charities, trade unions, academics, health and housing practitioners, local authorities and energy services companies, the NRFC has taken a leading role in ensuring that fuel poverty remains high on the political agenda ever since.
Our objectives are to continue to campaign to ensure that:
 Fuel poverty remains high on the political agenda
 UK energy policy apportions a fair amount of resource and support for vulnerable energy consumers
 Energy suppliers provide value for money and a fair deal to all household energy consumers

Our campaigns are based on the following approaches:
 Parliamentary stakeholder events with MPs and other key policy makers
 Working with our members and key stakeholders to develop reports and policy proposals – Our 2012 Smart Meter report can be found here
 Building public campaigns and working with partner organisations to form petitions – For example, the Energy Bill Revolution
