Power for People is a not-for-profit organisation, campaigning for the UK to rapidly transition to 100% clean energy and for local communities to benefit from this great transition.

We run grass-roots mobilisation campaigns, engaging and involving citizens and local communities and calling on them to lobby their elected representatives for changes in the law or in government policy. You can read about our current campaigns HERE.

Power for People was founded in 2017 and we are entirely funded by UK registered trusts and the generous donations of individuals.

We need you! Our campaigns will only succeed if many people get involved and take action. It’s all about strength in numbers and working together to achieve a common goal. We know this works because of the many successful campaigns for environmental and social change that have been won through mass grass-roots action.
