Call for End to Fuel Poverty Made in Face of Huge Increase in Excess Winter Deaths and in Support of Challenge Poverty Week

‘Set out a detailed plan to ensure that no-one in Scotland has to live in a cold, damp, expensive to heat home.’

This is the call from the national charity Energy Action Scotland to the Scottish Government during Challenge Poverty Week and on the day that a four-fold increase in the number of excess winter deaths in Scotland is announced.
