Fuel Poverty

The Welsh Government’s investment and efforts seem to have helped to reduce the levels of estimated fuel poverty but it has not met any of its targets.

Fuel poverty is a significant issue. There is evidence that living in a cold, damp home has negative impacts on people’s mental and physical well-being as well as their longer-term life prospects. The Welsh Government invests heavily in efforts to tackle fuel poverty and spends money dealing with some of the consequences.
