The Warm Homes Project has begun!
Fuel poverty can cover several groups of people — those who are on a low income, those who are older and particularly vulnerable (usually over 65) and those who may be on benefits or have illnesses that become exacerbated by the cold.
If you know of anyone who would like to enquire as to what benefits they may be entitled to, or if they are particularly vulnerable during these colder months, or just want some energy advice, please send referrals into Information and Advice and action to either Ceri Shotton, Information Services Coordinator or Marina Cassidy, our new Warm Homes Advisor.
Marina can be contacted directly on email@example.com
or 07718 480242
We can provide information and advice on energy and keeping warm, run benefit checks, help to switch energy suppliers and find the best deal, apply for boiler grants, apply for the Warm Home Discount and make sure the people we see are warm and well this Winter.
It is for anyone over 65 and covers the whole of Cheshire. Advice can either be given over the telephone, appointments can be made at the Chester I&A office or we can meet people in the community or in their homes.
Advice can still be given to those under the age of 65.
This project will end on 13th March 2020 so please take this opportunity to refer people over while you can.
