Greenwich do not have a dedicated fuel poverty programme, but they have a range of services that can assist those living in fuel poverty. The Welfare Rights Team can provide assistance with checks on tax credits and benefits, whilst Greenwich Money Advice Service can provide advice about debt and money problems. A handyperson service is available, as are energy efficiency grants. Greenwich are involved in the Big London Energy Switch, an energy auction being run by London Councils that aims to help you lower your energy bills. The next round will take place in Spring 2016.

For further details on the services available, including eligibility criteria, please see below.
