Going Dutch: Local Government and Fuel Poverty


This paper explores the challenge of rising household energy costs and draws on international inspiration to suggest a new model of support that councils can adopt to help citizens. More broadly, this paper calls on local government to consider new ways of engaging with citizens above and beyond traditional relationships. By encouraging local government to be more enterprising and creative NLGN believes there are a host of new ways that councils can become forces for good in the lives of their communities.
