Working for Warm, Dry Homes
Energy Action Scotland (EAS) campaigns for an end to fuel poverty in Scotland and is the only national charity with this sole remit.
EAS aims to develop and promote effective solutions to the problem of cold, damp and expensive to heat homes.
The website has been designed and developed to allow diverse users the ability to easily source policy, research, press and project materials on the above.
Through the site we will keep you up to date with training, current issues, events and news and our new members' section will be active by the end of May.
The Target to End Fuel Poverty
This year the statutory duty placed on the Scottish Government by the Housing (Scotland) Act 2001 must be fulfilled.
- To ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, that people are not living in fuel poverty in Scotland by November 2016.
With 34.9% of Scottish households currently in fuel poverty, it is clear the target will not be met. This will result in hundreds of thousands of Scottish households continuing to live in the misery of cold, damp homes and making unacceptable choices between heating and eating.
