Fuel Poverty – Warm Homes Fund

Further to our recent post relating to Winter Fuel Payments 2018/19 we thought you would also like to know about another initiative that may help those you support in Norfolk.

In winter some people struggle to pay their energy bills and in which case they may be interested and eligible to receive help through Norfolk’s Warm Homes Fund Partnership.

The partnership was created following Broadland District Council’s successful bid for £3.1m in funding from the National Grid’s Warm Homes Fund. The project aims to help more than 1,000 people, including homeowners and renters.

The money will be used to provide insulation and first-time central heating such as renewable heating, mains gas, oil, or LPG. The aim is to increase comfort in fuel-poor households that do not have any central heating, as well as to provide energy advice and support.

Norfolk residents may be able to get help from the Warm Homes Fund if they have underlying health issues, are caring for someone vulnerable and are worried about their home being cold or damp. Residents can find out if they are eligible for support under the scheme, by contacting their Energy Team at their local district council.
