New Measures to tackle Fuel Poverty, 30/05/08 [W/E/NI/S]

The UK Government has announced new measures to help those vulnerable to fuel poverty, including young families and disabled people.

Measures include:

  • Seeking changes in the law to allow data-sharing with energy suppliers;
  • 150,000 to fund a roll out of Ofgem’s national Citizens Advice Bureau awareness campaign on social assistance for the vulnerable;
  • A pilot scheme to ensure people applying for Warm Front grants are referred to their energy supplier for tariff advice so that they can make maximum savings.
