Children living in cold homes are more than twice as likely to suffer from respiratory illness, such as asthma and bronchiolitis, than those in warmer homes. Fuel poverty can also affect babies’ growth and development, have devastating effects on young people’s mental health, and adversely impacts children’s education.

Your local Citizens Advice can be contacted directly if you want to speak to someone about any difficulties you may be having, see the local service list.
