New Year, New Healthy Home

Health & Wellbeing Responsible Resource Use

The start of a new year is often an opportunity to take stock of your current situation and to look for ways to improve your health and happiness for the coming few months. One way to care for your mental and physical well-being is to find ways to keep your home warm throughout the winter months.

The environmental charity PECT is offering households free, friendly, and impartial advice and resources, to help them cut down on heating bills and stay warm throughout the colder months. Warm housing is important for our physical and mental wellbeing, and it can lower the risks from respiratory illnesses, such as Coronavirus.

PECT’s Warm Homes project, which works in partnership with Fenland District Council, aims to help people maintain a warmer home, support their health and wellbeing, reduce their energy bills, and cut carbon. Warm Homes is a free service, available for people living in Huntingdonshire and Fenland.

“People may be struggling to keep their homes heated this winter. The problem has been exacerbated by the economic, health and social challenges created by Covid-19”, explains Project Officer Nikki Dekker.

“Cold and damp housing can cause serious impacts on our health and wellbeing. If you have any friends or family who are struggling to heat their homes this winter, let them know about our free and impartial Warm Homes service.”

To access the Warm Homes service, please contact 0800 8021773, email [email protected] or visit www.pect.org.uk/WarmHomes.
