5. Fuel Poverty Strategy for Kent

Every year, millions of households throughout England will struggle to keep warm at home. This situation, known as 'fuel poverty', damages peoples' quality of life and imposes wider costs on the community.

In 2013, just over 64,000 households in Kent/Medway were affected by fuel poverty.  Fuel poverty matters to Kent residents and can offer a multitude of pay-off: better living standards and conditions for those people on low incomes; improved and more energy efficient housing stock; fewer winter deaths and reduced costs for the NHS.

The Kent Energy Efficiency Partnership has completed, Delivering Affordable Warmth – A Fuel Poverty Strategy for Kent. This Strategy has been developed in line with the National Government policy on fuel poverty and will address at local level the interventions needed to improve the health and well-being of Kent residents.

The Kent Energy Efficiency Partnership is group of local authority officers who have responsibility to address fuel poverty.  Finding ways to help those vulnerable households out of fuel poverty and to also reduce carbon emissions is priority.
