How do rising energy costs affect you as a person living with HIV?
Posted on: November 7 2012, 01:51 pm

Terrence Higgins Trust has been working with EAGA Charitable Trust on a project they are undertaking with the University of Leicester  to explore disability and fuel poverty. EAGA is an influential agency that works to hold Government and energy companies to account on fuel prices and the impact on consumers.

Their project will explore the range of needs which disabled people have in relation to energy, including high usage and affordability. It will also highlight the likely implications for disabled people of benefit changes and access to energy and will aim to challenge decision-makers and energy suppliers to improve policies and practices to ensure that the energy needs of disabled individuals and households are met.

Researchers from the project would like to interview one or two people living with HIV about their energy needs and related issues of affordability etc.  The interviews would be anonymised and the text checked with them in advance of publication of our report.

Find out more here. 

If you would like to share your experiences of how HIV impacts on your energy costs please contact Catherine Murphy from Terrence Higgins Trustís Policy Team at catherine.murphy@tht.org.uk
