Covering both Middlesbrough and Redcar & Cleveland, the South Tees Affordable Warmth Action Plan 2020-2022 sets out how we can all combat the scourge of fuel poverty across the South Tees.
The impacts that fuel poverty has on physical and mental well-being cannot be understated. Likewise, the scale at which this area is experiencing it cannot be understated: Currently in Redcar & Cleveland, 12.1% of households are in fuel poverty; in Middlesbrough this rises to 15.4%. In total, this means that around 16,567 homes are in fuel poverty across South Tees.
This action plan should give some healthy insight into the steps being taken, and that will be taken, into combatting this complex problem. You can download the PDF via clicking the link below.
