Fuel poverty and residents: identifying solutions

Date: 10th October 2012 Time: 10:00am to 4:00pm
Location: Manchester Cost: See event page

The fuel poverty is having a devastating impact on health outcomes and well being in the UK. Unfortunately those impacts are increasing. Sustainable Homes and partners will present a one-day conference investigating the research and action being taken to combat fuel poverty.  A particular focus will be action being taken by registered housing providers and their residents.

  "The latest Office of National Statistics figures show that there were 25,700 excess winter deaths in England and Wales in the 2010 winter. The latest WHO research suggests that 30 to 40 per cent of the excess winter deaths can be attributed to fuel poverty, 7,800 deaths in the UK."  
  Professor Christine Liddell, University of Ulster, February 2012  


"There are other issues. To take one location, in London, an average of 3,710 Londoners die every year as a result of living in a cold home, and there are over 23,000 additional emergency hospital admissions and almost 93,000 additional outpatient attendances."


Jessica Allen, Deputy Director of the Institute of Health Equity, University College of London.  September 2011.

  "The numbers of people living in fuel poverty are projected to hit 9.1 million by 2016."  

Camco, February 2012
