New toolkit helps make the link between improving cold homes and health outcomes

Source By: Gov.uk

PHE has worked closely with the Department of Energy and Climate Change and the Centre for Sustainable Energy to help develop the Affordable Warmth and Health Evaluation Toolkit, which was launched last week.

The direct and indirect impacts of cold homes on health is well recognised in policy and research, such as the Cold Weather Plan for England and the NICE guidelines on Excess winter deaths and illness and the health risks associated with cold homes. Locally delivered schemes to tackle the problems of fuel poverty and cold homes are important in enabling households to achieve health and wellbeing benefits.

The new evaluation toolkit aims to help local organisations who manage affordable warmth schemes, and their partners, to understand the effects of their scheme on health and wellbeing and therefore build better relationships with the health sector. Identifying the link between an affordable warmth scheme’s interventions and health and wellbeing improvements can also contribute towards helping local authorities fulfil their Public Health responsibilities.
