This report has been written by the New Policy Institute for the Eaga Partnership CharitableTrust. Its main objectives are:

  • To analyse the extent of the overlap between fuel poverty, income poverty and other forms of deprivation.
  • To analyse how the risks of fuel poverty (both overall and for those in income poverty)vary for different groups of the population and what factors account for these differing risks.
  • To identify the policy implications arising and to challenge policy makers, campaigners and others to consider how the policies they promote or pursue may impact upon those in fuel poverty.
