Affordable warmth and health impact evaluation toolkit
A toolkit to make evaluation of the health and wellbeing impacts of affordable warmth schemes easier and more effective
Commissioned by the Department of Energy and Climate Change
Guidance on how to plan and undertake an impact evaluation to understand the effects of an affordable warmth scheme for health and wellbeing.
Affordable warmth schemes come in many different forms, and to provide flexibility the toolkit does not specify a single, one-size-fits-all process. Instead, it gives information, advice, and a set of tools.
The toolkit is for local organisations that manage affordable warmth schemes and their partners. Schemes do not currently need to have a formal relationship with the health sector to be able to benefit from this toolkit.
This toolkit focuses on using impact evaluation in order to see if there is a link between an affordable warmth scheme’s interventions and health and wellbeing improvements in the recipients of interventions.
