An important video has been released that sheds light on the devastating impact that soaring energy prices are having on households in Wales. The video features interviews with experts from National Energy Action (NEA) and Warm Wales who are all working tirelessly to tackle fuel poverty and provide homes with affordable warmth.
The video provides a glimpse into the daily struggles faced by over 600,000 households in Wales that are living in fuel poverty. It shows families being forced to live in one room, skipping meals because they can’t afford to feed the meter, and going without energy entirely, all while building up debt. It also shows that fuel poverty is not just an issue that affects energy, but also health, housing, poverty, education, the environment, and social justice.
The experts featured in the video stress the importance of finding tailored solutions that meet the specific needs of each household and community. They also highlight the crucial role that community-led organisations like Warm Wales play in empowering people to make the right choices and decisions for themselves and in reducing the levels of fuel poverty across Wales.
