This report assesses how many health and wellbeing boards in England are including public health indicators on fuel poverty and excess winter deaths in their needs assessments and health and wellbeing strategies. The report also assesses the extent to which health and wellbeing boards are applying National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommendations to reduce ill health associated with living in a cold home.

The Chesshire Lehmann Fund (CLF) was established in September 2009 in memory of Professor John Chesshire and Dr Peter Lehmann. Both men were Fabian socialists who had a commitment to community and environmental energy causes long before awareness of climate change became widespread. John and Peter were very active across a range of professional bodies and were also engaged in charitable causes linked to energy efficiency and poverty alleviation. From 2002 Peter and John had been, respectively, Chair and Vice-Chair of the Fuel Poverty Advisory Group and were responsible for tough, but accurate, advice to Government. CLF obtained gifts from several of the major utilities and this enabled us to provide funds for a collection of academic researchers (typically receiving £5000) and community groups (receiving £2000-£3500). In total we distributed £107,600. Nearly every project was visited by one or more of the Trustees, during the period of the grant. This report demonstrates the findings from 24 of the 25 grants awarded together with updates from the 14 students we funded to attend an annual National Energy Action (NEA) conference. There is a report on each grant, together with notes on subsequent activity and contact details. The findings are a combination of the results from the projects themselves, together with comments from the Trustees. In sequence, we have sections on evidence, health and education, communities and policy, followed by notes on students we have supported.
