Green Doctors

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!  

The Green Doctor service is FREE of charge subject to eligibility criteria. The Green Doctor service is available in Leeds, Bradford, Selby and Harrogate.
