The Department of Social Policy and Social Work and the Centre for Housing Policy at the University of York have been awarded a grant by eaga Charitable Trust to investigate the relationship between fuel poverty and disability. This first project deliverable considers the relationship between different indicators of disability and long term illness (self reported, state defined, and types of reported disability and illness), different measures of fuel poverty (the ‘official’ full income version, and the often used basic income version), and a range of other factors typically associated with the prevalence of fuel poverty.
