Winter Warmth

Business Responsible Resource Use

Cambridge residents can enjoy a warmer home this winter with help from a new project

Do you live in Cambridge? Would you like to cut household bills and keep your home warm this winter for less?

Cambridge City Council, in partnership with the environmental charity PECT, can help you with its free energy advice service: Winter Warmth.

Cambridge City Council>

What support is available?

All Cambridge residents can book to receive a free home energy advice visit from an impartial and friendly advisor – including a free goodie bag! Winter Warmth 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 Home Discount, Cambridgeshire Home Improvements Agency 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.
