Helping Yorkshire save money and keep warm
Energy bills are the number one financial concern for households – but 63% of us think there’s nothing we can do about them*. At the same time fuel bills are rising*, UK homes are amongst the least energy efficient in Europe and we have one of the highest rates of fuel poverty*.
Groundwork’s GREEN DOCTOR service is a practical solution, helping people to take control and to reduce their environmental impact at the same time. The service provides home visits and 1-2-1 advice which can help you use less energy, keep warm and save money!
