Healthy Homes Crisis Fund
The main aims of the project are to raise awareness of fuel poverty and reduce fuel poverty amongst residents with health problems. A simple way for people to get help to improve their living conditions can be achieved by the provision of Key Workers to advise clients on how they can get the advice or measures they need. The project is aimed at homeowners who have a health condition or are at risk of developing one if insulation and/or heating measures are not installed. The funding will be used to set up a Crisis Fund to help those in desperate need and those who fall outside existing schemes. The fund could be used, for example, to provide immediate repairs for boilers where there is a desperate need such as those with a critical illness, young children or those in severe fuel poverty.
