Consumer Council for Water (CCWater) represents water and sewerage consumers in England and Wales. It provides a strong national voice for consumers. It has offices throughout England and Wales so that it can keep in close contact with companies that provide water and sewerage services, and with consumers themselves. CCWater’s job is to make sure that the collective voice of consumers is heard in national water debate and that consumers remain at the heart of the water industry. It will also take up consumers’ complaints if they have tried and failed to resolve issues with their water companies. It aims to settle 70% of complaints within 20 working days and settle 85% within 40 working days. Since CCWater was formed it has been highly successful in achieving these aims.

National Energy Action (NEA) is the national charity seeking to end fuel poverty. It works across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and with its sister charity Energy Action Scotland, to ensure that everyone can afford to live in a warm, dry home. In partnership with central and local government, fuel utilities, housing providers, consumer groups and voluntary organisations, the NEA undertakes a range of activities to address the causes and treat the symptoms of fuel poverty. These include: Campaigning to ensure that the needs of fuel poor households are recognised and addressed, researching and analysing the causes and extent of fuel poverty and developing policies which will address the problem, developing and managing demonstration projects that show innovative ways of tackling fuel poverty, providing advice and guidance to installers on good practice in delivering energy efficiency services to low income households and developing national qualifications and managing their implementation to improve standards of practical work and quality of energy advice. Its work encompasses all aspects of fuel poverty, but in particular emphasises the importance of greater investment in domestic energy efficiency.

Rural England is a Community Interest Company, which is managed by its team of Directors and whose work programme and outputs are shaped by a Stakeholder Group. This structure is designed to ensure that it operates independently of any-one interested party. Having a robust, up-to-date and trusted evidence base about rural areas and services matters. It is a basis for assessing the right policy responses to rural challenges and opportunities. It enables informed debate about the best way to deliver services and initiatives to rural communities and businesses. In a fast changing world, it is a means for identifying rural trends and upcoming issues. Whether it is the move to online services, the impact of an ageing population, reformed and financially leaner public services, or joint working across public-private-community sectors to deliver services, there is a very real need to understand the rural implications. Rural England exists to bring together rural networks and stakeholders, to improve the rural evidence base, and to help disseminate and debate the findings. It does this in response to a widely perceived deterioration in the rural evidence base, which should not be allowed to happen unchecked.
