Debt and Disconnection Project
The project aims to alleviate fuel poverty by working towards the eradication of disconnection, the fitting of pre-payment meters and empowering clients to self help. To do this, the project will address the causes of debt, address persistent billing problems, the issues around pre-payment meters, fuel competition, the symptoms and causes of fuel poverty, increase health and well being and work with ScottishPower to help those who are identified as being in danger of imminent disconnection. The target groups will include young people, children in low-income households, older people, the sick and disabled, lone parents and the unemployed.
