Jimmy Pugh

Project Development Co-ordinator National Energy Action (NEA)

Jimmy joined NEA in October 2010 on secondment to help provide support to NEA with the increase in fuel debt issues they were receiving and his experience of 25 years as a welfare rights / debt adviser for a range of organisations which included local authority, housing association and CAB. He was employed by NEA in 2011 as a project development co-ordinator and has since delivered a range of adviser and customer facing projects providing awareness sessions, workshops, leaflets and support to community organisations in line with his specialism of fuel debt. In addition, he is chair of the NEA North West Fuel Poverty Forum and NEA North West Fuel Debt Network Meeting engaging with key stakeholders and frontline advisers organising regular stakeholder events. Jimmy also compiles NEA’s Fuel Debt Bulletin which provides a summary of the key topics affecting the provision of fuel debt advice and highlights help available for frontline workers / householders.

Suzanne Barningham

Energyworks Manager, Groundwork

Suzanne Barningham joined Groundwork in 2013 and leads the Energyworks Programme and Team which provides a wide range of tailor-made services across GM where the focus is on customer need and not a ‘one-size fits all’ approach. Suzanne has developed the programme from the small ‘Get me Toasty’ team that began in Rochdale to a service which has grown in success, expanding across the whole of Greater Manchester, building networks and forging strong partnerships along the way. Our Green Doctors are helping more and more residents make their homes warmer, more energy efficient and healthier places to live. Suzanne works with landlords, local authorities, health partners and residents to tackle the problem of fuel poverty in our local communities. Having a background in welfare to work programmes, Suzanne’s initial role at Groundwork was as an Employment Adviser with our Work Programme teams in both Bury and Rochdale. Having worked with customers with multiple and complex needs for over 2 years, before taking on the role of Homeless Persons Employment Adviser, she was well equipped to develop the Energyworks Team to provide information, advice and guidance to local residents as she truly understands the different push and pull factors in vulnerable communities. Suzanne’s aspiration is to change the world in GM to reduce the number of households year on year who are living in fuel poverty.
