Octavia has teamed up with local authorities and an environmental charity to provide free help for residents who may be finding it hard to meet the cost of heating their home.
If you feel you would like your home to be warmer, but are worried about the cost of turning the heating up, the Homes4Health initiative may be able to help. You can get a free home visit from a ‘Green Doctor’ (energy efficiency expert), who can help you with things like:
- Explaining how to make your home energy efficient.
- Installing energy saving devices for no charge.
- Providing independent advice on switching your energy supplier to save money.
The programme is aimed at households with residents who are over 65, on a low income, or where someone living in the home has a long term health condition or disability.
To request a Green Doctor visit, or for more information on how they can help you keep your home warmer, call 0300 365 5003 or email GreenDoctorsLdn@groundwork.org.uk.
