Launched by trade association The UK and Ireland Fuel Distributors Association (UKIFDA) and their members across the UK and Ireland, The Cold Weather Priority (CWP) scheme identifies heating oil customers, aged 75+, who are most vulnerable to cold conditions. The scheme ensures UKIFDA member heating oil suppliers prioritise everyone on the scheme and undertake best endeavours for heating oil deliveries, especially in times of fuel shortage or extreme cold weather.
The Cold Weather Priority scheme is designed to identify those people who may be susceptible to colder conditions, enabling fuel suppliers across the UK to know exactly who may be at risk.
