Cold Homes Week (1-5 February 2016) is a week of action on fuel poverty and excess winter deaths.
Each winter one older person dies every seven minutes from the cold weather. Many of these deaths could be prevented if everyone lived in a warm home.
That’s why Age UK is calling on the Government to reform its energy efficiency programmes to enable all older people to live in a warm home. We believe that no older person should have to worry about the cold and everyone should be able to keep warm and well in winter.
