Analysis of a survey undertaken with Barnardo’s services has identified a range of family groups that have experienced fuel poverty in the last year. Chapter one of this report examines the growing gap between how much families spend on fuel and the amount needed to keep their homes warm, fuel debt and the problems of tariffs and pre-pay meters. Chapter two examines energy efficiency measures and financial support for families on low incomes. Chapter three assesses the impact that fuel poverty has on the lives of children, young people and their families. Finally, chapter four sets out a full list of recommendations for tackling fuel poverty. (Barnados)
