New funding for our Warmth Matters Project!

Thanks to funding from UK Power Networks we are increasing the scope of our Warmth Matters project in the east of of the county. We will be working with partners to provide advice and information to help low-income households to help them to save energy, save money and access services they need.

This new funding will enable us to:

  • Provide advice sessions to households struggling with their energy bills
  • Launch four new energy clubs across the county
  • Attend fuel poverty and community events
  • Share resources to households in need of extra support

We will be helping with things like:

  • Explaining supplier and tariff options, including time of use awareness
  • Priority Service Register awareness and registration
  • The Warm Home Discount Scheme
  • Energy debts
  • Ways to keep bills down and save money
  • Support sessions for charities and community groups
