The UK has some of the most energy inefficient homes in Europe. Heat escaping from windows, doors and walls, leads to higher energy bills, unheated homes, ill health and even death – that’s why we’re supporting Cold Homes Week 2015.
Created by the Energy Bill Revolution, Cold Homes Week aims to raise awareness about the struggle millions face every winter to keep their families and homes warm. 25,000 people die every year in the winter months and a third of the deaths are due to living in cold homes – that’s four times more than the number of people who die every year on British roads*, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
You can support the campaign by visiting the Cold Homes Week website and seeing if your local MP is in support of fairer fuel prices and warmer homes. There is still time to show your support, so don’t delay and message your MP today!
