United for Warm Homes: Highlighting the health impacts of cold homes

Join this webinar to hear the results of brand new research into the health impacts of fuel poverty and how we can make our decision makers act so that no one has to suffer from cold, damp housing.

No matter who you are, if you live in a cold home, your health and wellbeing are at risk,  Friends of the Earth is working with the Institute of Health Equity to produce a report on the health impacts of living in cold homes.  Across  the country people are suffering because their homes are cold and damp. We need the government to act now.

Join us to hear about the findings from this research and how you can use it to win support for the campaign from your MP and general election candidates. During the webinar we’ll provide a host of resources that you can use locally to highlight the links between health inequality and fuel poverty, and to persuade your decision makers to sign up to the United for Warm Homes pledge.
