PECT set to help Peterborough residents enjoy a warmer home this winter

Health & Wellbeing Responsible Resource Use

Are you a local Peterborough resident? Would you like to cut costs and keep your home warm this winter for less? The environmental charity PECT can provide support with its free energy advice service: Warm Homes.

Residents can book to receive a free home energy advice visit from an impartial advisor, gain advice in choosing the best energy tariff and supplier, access information on the national £140 Warm Home Discount and get a free goodie bag.

PECT aims to provide 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.

“We want to enable all Peterborough residents to take advantage of this great, free service,” explains Project Officer Shani Lambert. “By working with you and offering impartial advice, we can help you to cut costs and enjoy a warm and healthy home this winter.”

Richard Taylor, Secretary of the ScottishPower Energy People Trust, said: “Inspirational organisations like PECT play a vital role in the local community, they champion local residents to improve their wellbeing throughout winter. The Energy People Trust is proud to support such a proactive charity.”

This project is funded by the ScottishPower Energy People Trust and is supported by Cross Keys Homes.
