Why Green Doctors?

The latest Government research, published in 2019, has shown that 11.8% of London households are experiencing fuel poverty.* Fuel poverty impacts heavily on the health and well-being of some of London’s most vulnerable residents, including families with young children and the elderly. Our Green Doctors visited over 3,300 households in London last year helping people to reduce their energy bills, improve their wellbeing and save energy. On average the households we visit save £350 a year. With the average annual shortfall that places a household into fuel poverty being £333, the Green Doctor service is effectively lifting thousands of households out of fuel poverty each and every year.

*Household and fuel poverty numbers at region level come from the national fuel poverty statistics, 2017: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/fuel-poverty-detailed-tables-2019
