New group to combat fuel poverty established in Scotland

A new organization designed to combat fuel poverty has been established in Scotland, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.

Since 39.1% of households in Scotland are in fuel poverty, according to the latest statistical released, the newly-established Scottish Rural Fuel Poverty Task Force will have its work cut out for it.

The Scottish Rural Fuel Poverty Task Force, which includes 22 members, will explore the issues facing people in fuel poverty and will prepare a report on its findings over the next year. It aims to make heating homes easier and more affordable for people in rural and remote parts of the country.

Scottish Housing Minister Margaret Burgess said: “People in rural areas can often struggle to heat their homes because their properties tend to be more exposed to wind and weather and are more expensive to heat as the majority are not connected to mains gas supplies. It is unacceptable for people to face these fuel poverty challenges just because of where they live.”
