Stig of the Damp

A play on words from the popular TV series of the 1980s, the title for this project has come about by comparisons of STIG as a young person having to resort to living in a cold, damp and forgotten habitat, left behind the times without the basics of comfort and warmth; and our young students today living in sprawling, energy inefficient, homes that they cannot afford to heat.

Young students today find themselves with spiralling debt, living in rented accommodation, unable to pay for fuel and without access to energy efficiency grants and schemes because students are not categorised as ‘vulnerable’ despite their clear vulnerability.
