We are delighted to have the Fuel Poverty Reduction Hubs initiative recognised at these national awards . Our work in Wales, with colleagues at Cardiff Council and our partners, on fostering Fuel Poverty Reduction Hubs shows a new determination in tackling the silent killer of Fuel Poverty. Joining forces under the Healthy Homes Healthy People initiative allows us to share best practise, creating more effective action plans.
