Affordable warmth for all

The not decent and unfit housing persists in the social housing stocks. Their occupants often lack the means to solve the situation. Designed for both social and private landlords, local authorities and supporting associations, this guidance document presents good practices and offers financial and operational tools to assist households in the sustainable retrofitting of their dwelling.

The guidebook compiles the results of two years of research in the FinSH project. The objective was to explore ways to reduce financial and social barriers preventing access to social housing retrofitting and energy efficiency measures.

The outcome of this study has identified holistic approach strategies that offer comprehensive and practical solutions adapted to fieldwork. Organized in eight chapters, this guide is a useful operational tool to eliminate these major obstacles and recreate leverage.
