Description:
CARDI funded an all-island study in December 2009, led by Professor Patrick Goodman, DIT, in conjunction with the Institute of Public Health in Ireland, which builds on existing knowledge on fuel poverty but with a particular focus on older people. It involved an analysis of existing data and research on fuel poverty, a survey with older people on fuel povertyissues in ROI and an examination of mortality patterns in NI and ROI. It also identifies the groups among the older population who are most at risk of fuel poverty and its implications for their health and well-being.
