How many London boroughs have implemented the Fuel Poverty Action Plan?

The Fuel Poverty Action Plan sets out what is needed to help lift Londoners out of fuel poverty. It sets out actions that I, boroughs, other key stakeholders and Government should undertake.

A number of boroughs have been active in delivering the Warmer Homes Advice Service, funded by me, and in promoting my Warmer Homes programme. Borough elected members and energy, public health and social care officers are represented on the Fuel Poverty Partnership through London Councils, the Association of Local Energy Officers London, the Association of Directors of Public Health London, and the London Association of Directors of Adult Social Services and are working with me to lobby government for more action to tackle fuel poverty in London. My officers are also working with boroughs on the London Boroughs Private Rented Sector Partnership to tackle energy inefficient homes in that tenure.
