Fuel Poor Funding Boost

North-East Set to Benefit from Additional Winter Fuel Funding

SNP MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast, Stewart Stevenson, has hailed the announcement that winter fuel funding will increase.

Families across Aberdeenshire Council area are set to benefit from £312,000 of additional funding to keep their homes warm this winter, the Scottish Government has announced.

Housing associations and councils in North-east will be given a share of a £9 million national fund to help improve the housing of those most in need, and help to ensure that social housing meets energy efficiency standards – making it easier for tenants across North-east to heat their homes.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said,

“The Scottish Government has made tackling fuel poverty a priority – and this funding for the North-east is further evidence of that.

“The £312,000 that has been dedicated to Aberdeenshire Council and will go some way to helping the Council and housing associations tackle fuel poverty and ensure that some of the most vulnerable households in the North-east are able to heat their homes.

“The Scottish Government is dedicating half a billion pounds to tackle fuel poverty and to improve energy efficiency, which will make it easier and cheaper for tenants to heat their homes.

“It is vital that we continue this action and target it in a way that makes a difference to those who need it most across the North-east.”
