Britain faces a crisis this winter.
As energy prices rise even higher, it’s estimated a staggering 1 in 3 households will be in fuel poverty. Meaning millions will be left to make impossible choices between heating and eating.
Impacts of fuel poverty are worsened by the fact UK homes are especially vulnerable to cold. We have some of the leakiest homes in Europe with millions lacking basic insulation.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
Home insulation would reduce our spending on energy bills without compromising on warmth.
That’s why we’re calling for a free, government-funded home insulation programme. To be rolled out street-by-street by local councils, prioritising low-income households who need it most.
It’s critical the government starts investing in insulation now to prevent devastating choices this winter and in future years.
