Council scheme keeps residents warm and saves cash
Dudley Council’s winter warmth support scheme, which helped more than eight hundred residents keep warm and well in their homes last winter, has been launched once again.
The scheme aims to help people struggling to keep their homes and themselves warm enough during the winter months.
People can save significantly on their home energy bills with the right advice on appropriate tariffs, as well as energy discounts and grants.
A variety of practical support, information and expert advice is provided through the scheme. All sorts of help can be provided from expert advice and support with changing to the best energy provider and tariff and help with energy debt.
People can also receive help with home energy efficiency improvements and grants including access to free boiler and home insulation schemes.
Alan Lunt, deputy chief executive of Dudley Council, said:
We want everyone to keep warm and stay well this winter and that’s why our winter warmth support scheme will be offering helping and advice to people who may be struggling at home.
Anyone worried about keeping their home warm this winter, struggling with paying their fuel bills or concerned about keeping well at home during the winter due to the cold can ask for help from the scheme.
People can request a free home visit by calling the winter warmth helpline on 01384 817086.
