End the Cold Killer
To George Osborne, Ed Balls and Danny Alexander:
We call on you to financially commit your party to ending the cold homes crisis, which kills almost 10,000 older people in the UK every winter, by using infrastructure money to make 2 million low income households highly energy efficient by 2020 (EPC Band C) and to improve all 6 million low income homes to this standard by 2025.

In Europe, only Estonia has more people living in fuel poverty than Britain -- it’s a scandal that has been ignored for too long. But with the general election just around the corner, we can finally get a commitment from all major parties to solve our cold homes crisis.
Chancellor Osborne failed to address this silent killer in his latest budget and politicians from other parties are also refusing to commit the finances that are needed.
Let’s end this apathy! When 50,000 of us sign, we’ll deliver the petition with a coalition of charities to urge our leaders to end the crisis that causes thousands of old people to die, simply because they can’t keep warm. Sign now.
