“Fuel poverty affects thousands of people across the country. This contributes to a number of health problems, as respiratory, cardiovascular and mobility conditions can be made worse if an individual is living in a cold home.
By working together with many different organisations on a Staffordshire-wide scale, we can identify as many people as possible who are at risk of fuel poverty and related health risks, provide support and advice, and get them the help they need.”
