#50khomes – our pledge to bring an end to fuel poverty
Hosted by The Wise Group
Date: Thursday 20 February
Time: 1.30pm to 2.30pm
Room: Lomond Suite
An ever increasing number of people across Scotland and the UK are locked in a cycle of poverty and we are working hard on our mission to lift people out of it. A key area of focus for the Wise Group and our partners is alleviating fuel poverty – which affects over 600,000 households in Scotland. Without dedicated action, this will not decrease.
Over the next five years the Wise Group will provide free in-home energy advice and advocacy visits to at least 50,000 households.
Everyone has a right to a warm and safe home at a cost that’s affordable to them. For over 30 years the Wise Group has delivered projects to tackle fuel poverty; however we recognise there is a lot more to be done.
That’s why we are renewing our focus on tackling fuel poverty by increasing our commitment to delivering in-home advice and advocacy support to those who need it most.
We can’t deliver this alone, we need partners to support our #50khomes pledge and collaborate with us to help us achieve the greatest collective impact we possibly can. Join us on 20 February to find out how and what you can do to support.
