Ending Water Poverty in England:

Why it is more important than ever to end the postcode lottery of financial support.

Our Committee Meeting for England took place on 18 February 2022.

1.5 million households are still in water poverty in England and Wales – this number is likely to increase as the cost of living rises and the financial effects of Covid-19 continue to be felt.

At this event, we reflected on what’s changed in the 12 months since we carried out an Independent Review of Water Affordability, and explore why now is the right time to take the necessary steps to end water poverty for those struggling to pay their water bills in England and Wales.

We had speakers from:

  • UK Government
  • National Energy / Action
  • Joseph Rowntree Foundation.
