Bryson Energy gives its support to Fuel Poverty Awareness Day
Nigel Brady, Director, Bryson Energy said " Bryson Energy is delighted to add its support to the range of organisations who will come together in Northern Ireland to support Fuel Poverty Awareness day on the 23rd February 2018."
Fuel Poverty Awareness Day is a national campaign to highlight the problem of fuel poverty, which currently sees over four million households unable to afford the energy they need to stay warm and healthy in their homes. It is a particular problem for those in low incomes living in energy inefficient homes that are difficult and expensive to heat.
Living in a cold damp home can lead to extremely poor health, especially in those who are vulnerable such as older people, young children, and those with long term sickness and disabilities. Not only will it be causing misery for millions of people this winter, but also placing a huge strain on our already stretched health services.
In Northern Ireland alone, 42% of households are believed to be in fuel poverty.
Bryson Energy is the leading provider of impartial, independent energy advice in Northern Ireland. We provide a range of advice and support services to thousands of households each year. We fully support today’s awareness campaign and pledge to continue to work with the Fuel Poverty Coalition to help tackle the issue of fuel poverty.
A number of our services are specifically designed to assist those struggling with energy bills and living in cold, damp homes.
