A Framework for Action across West Sussex 2015 – 2018
Reducing fuel poverty can improve many aspects in people’s lives, including enabling them to keep as warm as they need to, which will help maintain their health and wellbeing.
Fuel poverty is not just one agency’s responsibility; it therefore requires a partnership approach to both identify vulnerable households and provide possible approaches to enable them to live healthier lives with minimal support. This Framework for Action draws upon current evidence, explains what fuel poverty is, what influences it and who it typically affects. It will also outline local plans of action, intervention and governance structures that contribute to positive partnership working across West Sussex.
