Millions of UK households are currently facing unmanageable choices about where to spend their limited income. This leaves many fearing for their health, the health of their children and elderly family members. Fuel poverty is at crisis levels.
NEA has produced this report to highlight some of the Many Faces of Fuel Poverty – the men and women, young and old, who have struggled to achieve that basic human right to live in a warm, dry home. Some of the names have been changed at our clients’ request, but these are all real stories illustrating some of the key difficulties faced by those in fuel poverty.
NEA campaigns on behalf of all fuel poor households across England, Wales and Northern Ireland and we work closely with Energy Action Scotland. We would be unable to undertake this important work without the generous support of sponsors, grant providers and donors.
