oliver-mchugh-cropOliver McHugh works in the Department for Social Development’s Housing Division and has been responsible for fuel poverty strategy development since 2008.  He was the main author of the Department’s latest Fuel Poverty Strategy “Warmer Healthier Homes” which was launched in March 2011.  The strategy committed the Department to work in partnership with the University of Ulster and local councils to test a targeted area based approach to tackling fuel poverty in Northern Ireland.

Since then Oliver has been working on the “Affordable Warmth Pilots” in collaboration with the University of Ulster, local councils and the Northern Ireland Housing Executive and is now bringing forward proposals for a new Affordable Warmth Scheme which will target those people who suffer most from fuel poverty.
