Company Description

Warm Wales Cymru Gynnes work to alleviate fuel poverty in Wales and the South West through community projects and partnership working. Find out more about Warm Wales below and read about our latest projects here.

Warm Wales was established in 2004 by the National Grid as part of that company’s specific aim to meet its corporate responsibility to Government and deliver benefits to 1 million fuel poor homes. It chose to do this under the banner of the ‘Affordable Warmth’ Programme. Warm Wales contributed towards achieving this target.

In 2006 Warm Wale changed its company status to become Wales’ first Community Interest Company (CIC). Being a CIC means we have no shareholders’, instead any profits made are put back into the communities we serve. Our status also means that we bring a community centred approach to economic, social and environmental sustainability. We invest in the communities in which we work and leave a legacy of positive achievements. A small selection of our past projects are included on this website.
