United for Warm Homes – ‘energy crisis’ briefings for Greater Manchester constituencies

Recent research by the Institute of Health Equity for Friends of the Earth estimated that 9.6 million households in the UK (34%) are at risk of living in a cold home. These households are on a low income and unable to pay anything to help insulate their home. The report found that cold homes are causing serious health impacts, including respiratory problems, increased risk of heart attacks, and worsening mental health in adults and children. It estimated that cold homes are costing our society billions per year, through increased costs to the NHS, higher caring costs, bigger energy bills, lost productivity from ill health and higher carbon emissions.

See United for Warm Homes – How to campaign on the 2024 general election for campaigning ideas.

Listed below are the ‘energy crisis’ briefings for each of the Greater Manchester parliamentary constituencies. If you are going to an election hustings, talking to candidates or (after the election) meeting with your newly elected Member of Parliament – send them a copy of the briefing and ask how they are going to help tackle cold homes.
