As we have seen in the press in recent weeks, an increasing number of people are struggling with their fuel bills, and many are having to make a difficult choice between heating their homes or going without other living essentials. As winter draws in and it begins to get colder, it’s especially important to think about the impact cold homes and high bills can have on your service users’ health and quality of life.
Call the Healthy Homes Helpline now on 0808 202 6204
The Healthy Homes scheme offers support to those residents who are struggling to heat their homes. Every call is followed up with a tailored package of advice and support: alongside information and advice on keeping warm and well, in the past the scheme has helped residents access free heating and insulation measures, provided help to those looking to switch to a cheaper tariff or energy supplier and run benefit checks that have helped some households increase their incomes by over £1000 a year.
