Bid to eradicate fuel poverty must include disabled people


The article reports that Leonard Cheshire Disability has warned that disabled people are at particular risk of fuel poverty and its ill-effects. A report by the charity said that the issue is failing to target disabled people, despite British government's aim to eradicate fuel poverty for vulnerable households by 2010. The charity's public policy manager, Guy Parckar, said that if the government is serious about the target , it has to draw up a specific plan to tackle the problem.
