Excess winter deaths

Add your voice

Every winter, tens of thousands of older people become seriously ill or even die, due to the cold.

Keeping warm is vital to older people's health and yet one in four households cannot afford to heat their homes.

But there is a fair and permanent solution. We can have warm homes and reduce our fuel bills.

We call on the Government to use the money it gets from our carbon taxes to make our homes super-energy efficient - driving down our energy bills forever.
