With climate change and rising costs, it is more important than ever to ensure everyone has access to basic living conditions.

The issue of fuel poverty in the UK is a growing concern. In 2022, an estimated 13.4% of households (3.26 million) in England were in fuel poverty. This is a significant increase from the previous year, and the situation is expected to worsen. The charity National Energy Action (NEA) has estimated that the total number of households across the UK in fuel poverty increased from around 4 million in summer 2020 to 6.7 million in October 2022.
