What support is available?
Our energy advice service provides households with the information and resources needed to stay warm and healthy, whilst cutting costs and carbon.
This service is vital, because NHS advice suggests that when the weather drops below 8C, some people are at increased risk of physical and mental health conditions; such as heart attack, stroke, pneumonia and depression. There is substantial evidence of the detrimental impact of fuel poverty on the physical and mental health of residents.
The service aims to offer help and advice on behavioural changes, choosing the best energy tariff and supplier, managing your water bills, and where eligible can assist you to access the national £150 Warm Homes Discount and other funding opportunities.
