What Are the Barriers That Prevent Those in Fuel and Water Poverty Accessing Financial Support Mechanisms? (Masters Research Dissertation)

Author: Lauren Probert

The success of programmes aimed at alleviating fuel and water poverty in the UK have been hampered by low levels of uptake. The combined impact of rising energy prices and economic downturn since 2008 has increased the risk of households experiencing both. While parallels can be observed between fuel poverty and water poverty, the issues remain under researched and a comparative analysis has not occurred. As a result, the potential for transferable learning and combined solutions is largely unknown.
