The Warm Homes Healthy People fund will not be repeated this year. However, ring-fenced funding of £5.45 billion for 2013-15 has been made available to local authorities to address public health priorities determined at the local level. In setting their priorities local authorities must take into account the Public Health Outcomes Framework which has excess winter deaths as an indicator.
