There’s another chance for people to get free advice on how to stay warm and keep their fuel bills down at a Warm Homes Healthy People roadshow on Thursday 21st March between 10am – 3pm at Morrisons, Grange Farm Avenue, Felixstowe.
“With no sign yet of an end to the cold weather, people who are concerned about staying warm or the size of their energy bills can get help and advice for themselves or for a friend, relative or neighbour they may be concerned about,” said Cllr T-J Haworth, Cabinet Member for Housing.
Suffolk’s Warm Homes Healthy People scheme can help people living in their own home, or one rented from a private landlord and is aimed at families on a low income, families with children, the over 60’s, households with a person with disabilities and young people with learning disabilities.
People can also find out if they or someone they know are eligible for some of the free help on offer such as emergency boiler repairs, or insulation and other energy- efficiency measures including draught proofing, or even assistance with paying fuel bills or the loan of a heater.
For those who cannot get to the roadshow event there is a special Winter Wellbeing helpline 08456 037686 to deal with enquiries. Anyone who has a vulnerable relative or neighbour is urged to help them find out more about what support and assistance might be available to them by calling the helpline.
