Meg supports ‘Fuel Poverty’ campaign

Monday, November 14, 2005

Sheffield Heeley MP Meg Munn has given her support to the fuel poverty and energy efficiency campaign ‘Warm Homes’- organised by the national charity NEA, in partnership with the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and energy suppliers.

 

The campaign is aimed at raising awareness amongst people who cannot afford to heat their homes of what they can do about it.

 

Meg said:

 

‘Up to 16% of people in Sheffield Heeley are said to live in fuel poverty, with the majority of those being elderly. It is predicted to be one of the coldest winters for forty years; not being able to keep their home warm could lead to tragic and unnecessary deaths.’

 

‘There is help available, like the winter fuel allowance for the elderly, but with increasing energy prices fuel poverty could affect other areas of society - such as families with young children and people with disabilities. However some people, often the most vulnerable, aren’t aware of the help available and that is why I have given my support to this campaign.’

 

The key message, campaigners urge, is don’t become another statistic this winter. Anyone worried about their winter fuel bill should call the Keep Warm Keep Well helpline on 0800 085 7000 for information and advice on keeping warm in winter, how to claim benefits and find out about energy efficiency grants.
