Findings of Nuffield study linked to future energy policy

The winter wellbeing of older people

On September 14th a policy workshop took place at UCL to discuss the findings of a recent Nuffield Foundation project undertaken by Dr Russell Hitchings, with Dr Rosie Day in Birmingham, on older people and winter wellbeing (see news item, below). A number of individuals attended from across government and from both the private and charity sectors.

The afternoon identified how this research can inform future energy policy, in terms of whether older people could feasibly become sustainability champions and how they should be assisted in staying well during periods of winter cold.
