Warm Homes

Health & Wellbeing Responsible Resource Use

We can help you to reduce your household carbon footprint and save on energy costs

Green Apple Awards Logo 2019Would you like to cut household bills and keep your home warm for less? We aim to support people to maintain a warmer home, so they can experience the associated health benefits and reduce their energy bills, in particular over the winter period.

If you live in Fenland or Huntingdonshire, then PECT (working in partnership with Fenland District Council) can help you with its energy advice service. PECT is also offering this service in Northern Cambridgeshire thanks to funding from the Energy Industry Voluntary Redress Scheme, please visit www.energyredress.org.uk for more details.

 

how do i access the service?

Call our freephone service 0800 8021773 or 01733 568408 (ext. 313), email [email protected] or use the referral form further down this page.

What support is available?

Warm Homes 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 £140 Warm Homes Discount and other funding opportunities.
