The cover of 'Making a house a home'

In this study, prepared for National Grid Affordable Warmth Solutions by The Children’s Society and National Energy Action, we explored the effects of living in fuel-poor households on everyday life, the tactics that people deploy to try to cope with these, and some of the unintended consequences that can ensue from the actions undertaken in an attempt to make life bearable at home when it is cold. Crucially, we explored what happens when a decision is made to intervene and allocate resources to helping families escape the debilitating clutches of fuel poverty.
