Northern Exposure – Warmth in Mount Vernon Report Findings

NEA Northern Ireland in partnership with the Public Health Agency, Mount Vernon Community Development Forum and Councillor Billy Hutchinson launched the findings of the Warmth in Mount Vernon project on Tuesday 15th March 2016 at Mount Vernon Community Development Forum, Mount Vernon Park, Belfast.

Councillor Billy Hutchinson with NEA and the Public Health Agency convened a working group in the area of Mount Vernon.  The objective was to deliver an intervention to maximise access to grants and other services, using a door to door approach with a particular focus on tackling fuel poverty.  The intervention included:

  • energy efficiency measures and advice
  • access to support around benefits and other services

NEA coordinated the planning and implementation of the intervention in partnership with Councillor Hutchinson and the Mount Vernon Community Development Forum. Results from the intervention will be presented at the event.
