It’s estimated that 335,000 London households live in fuel poverty. The Mayor of London’s new fuel poverty package announced includes:
Warmer homes – £2.5m grant funding for heating and insulation measures that will warm the homes of fuel poor Londoners. The scheme will target fuel poor home owners with up to £4,000 available to households claiming eligible benefits
Fuel Poverty Support fund – £250,000 grant funding to the boroughs of Islington, Croydon, Kingston and Lewisham, helping them to offer advice and refer fuel poor households across London to support services including income maximisation, health, and energy efficiency schemes.
