Stay warm this winter!

Monday, December 14, 2009

Meg Munn MP strongly supports the National Energy Action’s ‘Warm Homes Campaign’ to help ensure that all residents of Heeley stay warm this winter. Government statistics show that during the winter of 2008/9, there was just under a 50% rise in excess winter deaths across England and Wales.

 

With winter comes higher energy bills, and for some people this can lead to either sitting in cold homes, leading to illness, or debt problems as a result of paying high charges. The campaign reminds people of the importance of being warm in your own home, and stresses that help is available if you are worrying about your energy bill.

 

Meg said:

 

“Last year in my constituency there were 50 excess winter deaths. With over one in ten households in Heeley living in fuel poverty I feel it’s important to publicise this campaign. There is help for vulnerable households; we can avoid these preventable deaths.

 

Fuel poverty is a serious issue - high energy bills can lead to people facing debt problems. We need to improve energy efficiency in homes to bring these bills down, as well as helping people keep warm.”

 

NEA chief executive Jenny Saunders said:

 

“One in five households in the UK will face poor health, isolation, debt and worry due to fuel poverty this winter. It doesn’t have to be this way; there is funding and advice available.”    

 

If you need assistance call the Home Heat Helpline on 0800 33 66 99.
