Summary
‘The Health of the Nation’ will research the cost effectiveness and success factors of health-related fuel poverty schemes across the UK. SE2 Ltd and Lewisham Council are working together to build a new evidence base about the costs and outcomes of fuel poverty schemes, to help provide benchmarks to scheme managers and insight to policymakers. How do schemes measure success? What does value-for-money look like? How do scheme objectives and design affect results? How much does it cost to generate a referral? We will be asking local authorities, scheme providers and referral partners for insight and data to underpin this important and innovative study.
