Answer for Fuel Poverty

Answered By: 
The Mayor

In October 2011, I launched my annual Know Your Rights campaign, focussed on helping Londoners to keep warm this winter. This campaign highlighted the grants and other energy efficiency support available to fuel poor Londoners, including free and subsidised insulation measures.

My RE:NEW programme is also continuing to include benefits checks for homes, as these benefits act as gateways to further free energy efficiency support.
