About This Live Project

Sheffield Homes is an Arms Length Management Organisation (ALMO) set up and owned by Sheffield City Council to manage council housing in Sheffield. As our client, Sheffield Homes offered us a list of potential project briefs for us to choose from, all of which deal with important issues and concerns regarding the current council housing stock in Sheffield. Our group decided to embark upon developing innovative solutions to address the important issue of waste disposal in flatted council estates. Our hope is that our efforts can offer strong design initiatives on the topic whilst creating awareness and incentive on the importance of recycling and proper disposal of household waste.

Fuel Poverty Advisory Group

As part of BERR (Department for Business Enterprise and Regulatory Reform), the Fuel Poverty Advisory Group has produced annual reports and other publications that approach the issue of fuel poverty in quite serious depth.

The role of the Group is:

  • To consider and report on the effectiveness of current policies in delivering reductions in fuel poverty and the case for greater co-ordination
  • To identify barriers to the delivery of reductions in fuel poverty and to the development of effective partnerships, and propose solutions
  • To consider and report on any additional policies needed to deliver the Government’s targets
  • To enthuse, and encourage, key players to tackle fuel poverty
  • To consider and report on the results of the work to monitor fuel poverty
Their latest annual report offers considerable resource/research potential and be downloaded through the below link:
