CHEF (City of Hull and Humber Environmental Forum) and Hull City Council have recently been successful in obtaining funding from the Department of Health to tackle fuel poverty and improve energy efficiency between January and March 2012, under the Warm Homes Healthy People Fund. CHEF will be delivering a series of public events with partner agencies throughout the city helping those most vulnerable with the aim of reducing levels of death and morbidity due to cold housing. A similar bid on behalf of East Riding of Yorkshire Council has also been successful.
