RMIT University's Heatwaves, Homes and Health project seeks to understand how vulnerable households are coping with heatwaves – including any health, wellbeing or financial impacts related to home cooling. The findings will inform policy and programs to better support households during heatwaves.
They are seeking input from people working in health and social service organisations to share their experience, insights and concerns on the research topic. The short survey explores the impact of heatwaves on Australian households which include seniors, infants, and residents with long-term health issues. The survey questions relate to households who may be at risk of negative health and wellbing impacts during hot weather and who pay their own electricity bills.
The survey closes 20 January 2017.
