With their project: 'Food and Fuel Poverty among Older People in the UK', Aravinda Guntupalli, and Athina Vlachantoni from the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences are among the winners of the recent Policy Commissions Competition held by Public Policy@Southampton.

2013 saw the launch of inaugural Policy Commissions competition with a budget of £30,000 for funding policy commissions this year. Those entering the competition were advised that the minimum funding for any one Policy Commission was £5,000 and the maximum £15,000.
The many excellent entries demonstrated a wide range of research and the winning proposals brought together the expertise of world-leading academics with the expertise and experience of key policy-makers and practitioners.

'Food and Fuel Poverty among Older People in the UK', from
Aravinda Guntupalli, Athina Vlachantoni, based in the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences, is a truly multidisciplinary project and spans the research fields of both the Population Health and Ageing USRGs. Population Health is delighted to be able to contribute towards funding this project and we look forward to the event in November 2013 which will crown the research.
