What support is available?

All Fenland and South Kesteven residents can book to receive a free home energy advice visit from an impartial and friendly advisor. Warm Homes provides households with the information and resources needed to stay warm and healthy, whilst cutting costs and carbon.

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 £140 Warm Homes Discount and other funding opportunities.

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.

I have noticed a great difference in using energy and am very happy this was pointed out to me and changed.
