The UK Fuel Poverty Monitor is the annual investigative report on fuel poverty in the UK and within each of the four nations, published by NEA and Energy Action Scotland. Whilst the overlap between fuel poverty, cold-related illness and premature mortality are not entirely symmetrical, the monitor has investigated the key policies and practices that affect these overlapping issues for many years and has made country-specific and national recommendations. Cold homes cause unnecessary death and suffering, and it is not acceptable that thousands of people die as a result of living in a home that is cold in one of the richest countries in the world.
