It’s clear that without rapid change, our broken energy system and leaky, inefficient housing stock will keep us trapped in financial hardship for the foreseeable future.   

That’s why United for Warm Homes is calling for: 

  1. Further financial support to keep people warm. Huge inflation swarmed us after the last few years, and we were all struggling to live. As the price of food and other essentials continues to rise, too many people will be pushed into rationing their energy use this winter and living in cold homes. We need more targeted support to keep people warm and well.   
  2. A nationwide insulation programme. Upgrading homes with insulation is the cheapest and easiest way to permanently reduce our bills. But most people can’t afford it. We need governments across the UK to roll out an emergency programme of insulation and energy saving measures now, starting in neighbourhoods where fuel poverty is highest.
  3. Permanent fixes to our failed energy system. Our energy system currently prioritises massive fossil fuel company profits over meeting people’s basic needs. Everyone deserves a warm home, and there’s no good reason we can’t all have one. By powering our homes with cheap and clean renewables and guaranteeing everyone the energy they need to live comfortably, we can ensure no one is left in the cold.
