The Alliance gave evidence to the Social Justice and Social Security Committee in November 2021 as part of the Scottish Parliament’s scrutiny of the Scottish Government’s Fuel Poverty Strategy.
We believe the Fuel Poverty Strategy should be based on the following principles:
- Social justice and equality; applied equally regardless of where a person lives;
- Alignment of fuel poverty policy with Scotland’s response to the climate emergency so that no-one is left behind in the just transition to net zero;
- Lived experience of fuel poverty is included in its design and implementation; and
- A people first approach to programme delivery.
