Fuel Poverty Awareness Day


15th February is Fuel Poverty Awareness Day. It’s a day aiming to raise knowledge of, and engagement with, organisations working within our communities to support those who find themselves struggling with high fuel bills or a hard-to-heat home.

Most people would be unlikely to identify themselves as being in fuel poverty, they’re more likely to think:

  • I can’t pay my gas bill / top up my meter
  • I can’t afford to turn on the heating
  • My home is always damp or cold
  • I’m always ill

The causes for these can be complex, however can be due to:

  • Low income
  • High fuel costs
  • Energy inefficient homes
