Energy, Utilities and Climate Justice

The combination of high energy prices, poor quality housing and the persistence of low incomes significantly impacts on the households SVP assists.

Our advocacy work focuses on the supports for people in energy poverty such as the Fuel Allowance and measures focussed on long term, sustainable solutions such as improving the energy efficiency of housing across tenure types.

We also engage with the energy regulator and suppliers to ensure wraparound supports are in place for customers in financial difficulty and that energy prices are fair.

At SVP we believe everyone should be able to live in a warm home and that the essential action needed to transition to a low carbon economy must benefit those in energy poverty and be underpinned by principles of social justice.
