Fuel Poverty Awareness Day

 

Fuel Poverty Awareness Day will be held on 27th November this year.  It is the national day to raise awareness of some of the issues faced by those living in cold homes and the solutions available. This winter will be one of the most difficult in living memory. Lockdown and increasing unemployment will create a situation where more people are forced to spend time in homes that they can’t afford to heat. Many people will use more, pay more and owe more, while earning considerably less.

Fuel Poverty Awareness Day is an invaluable opportunity to encourage householders to seek support at the start of the winter period.

Stay well this winter

LEAP is delighted to part of Be Well in Cambridgeshire’s ‘Stay Well this Winter’ programme, which is a network of partners who work across the local health and social care system to mitigate the risks associated with cold weather to the health and wellbeing of our most vulnerable groups who live in cold homes due to fuel poverty.

If you are at risk of or living in fuel poverty, there are several ways in which your local stay well this winter programme can help you access the services, information and potentially even financial support to keep warm and well this winter, whilst reducing your energy bills.
