The charity campaigns on issues that include the need for regular electrical checks, the sale of dangerous electrical goods on online market places, product recall and registration, electrical DIY, and the importance of using registered electricians.

As well as raising awareness with the public, we work with politicians to ensure that the Government is doing all it can to keep people safe from electrical accidents and we deliver targeted funding support for those more vulnerable to harm caused by electricity.
