Warming up for vulnerable in Brighton and Hove
9:20am Monday 28th January 2013 in News
Scores of households will be warmer this winter after a free energy boost.
Brighton and Hove City Council is offering free home energy improvements to 60 homes in the city.
The Your Warm Home scheme will provide new boilers, draught-proofing and insulation to residents who find it hard to pay their energy bills and keep their homes warm.
Any private tenants or homeowners who are more than 60 years old, have a disability or long-term health condition, or are a low-income family, can apply to take part.
Caseworkers will be available to talk about the scheme at Brighton and Hove’s community voluntary sector groups.
Liz Wakefield, the chair of the council’s housing committee, said: “I am delighted that the scheme, which is a collaboration between the council and Communities Matter, is able to further help vulnerable city residents following a successful joint bid for funding with Eastbourne Borough Council and the Government totalling £410,000.”
To apply to take part, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Ollie Pendered at Communities Matter on 07870 689978.
