Identifying poverty and vulnerabilities: who, where and why?

Home > FAIR > Identifying poverty and vulnerabilities: who, where and why?

This aspect of our work is exploring the eventualities that render households vulnerable in energy and transport systems.

Identifying poverty and vulnerabilities: who, where and why?

This stage of our work examines households experiences of living in fuel and transport poverty. Through interviews with households in locations across the UK in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland we are collecting detailed experiences of the causes, and responses to fuel and transport poverty. Our research includes both urban and rural locations, and takes into account socio-demographics, aiming for a diverse range of participants, including those who are often excluded from research.

What we are asking

  • Who and which locations are vulnerable to energy and transport service poverty, to what extent, and why?
