Description:

The prime focus of the study was on the energy needs of people with physical, cognitive and sensory impairments and of families with disabled children.  The study explores the key factors which mean that many disabled people face significant difficulties in affording essential energy use and are at particular risk of fuel poverty. These include the well-evidenced links between disability and poverty/low income, and the additional costs arising from disability including essential extra energy needs.
