Fuel Poverty Coalition Manifesto

Children in Wales, as members of The Fuel Poverty Coalition has produced its manifesto ‘Ending Wales’ Cold Crisis’ for the National Assembly for Wales’ election in May 2016. The manifesto introduces five key priorities for action for the next Welsh Government over the next 5 years from 2016:

  1. Set a new fuel poverty target to improve homes to a minimum energy efficiency standard of EPC C, backed up with the data we need to drive an ambitious new strategy
  2. Invest in a well-resourced, well-targeted energy efficiency programme for fuel poor households in Wales as an infrastructure priority
  3. Save lives by implementing the NICE guidelines on tackling excess winter deaths
  4. Protect vulnerable households with a crisis fund for emergency heating when their health is at risk
  5. Fund independent advice services to help and support people in fuel poverty.
