Our Energy Efficiency Projects run across the North East and Yorkshire. They have helped many people save over £300 per year on their energy costs. Ensured house repairs are undertaken. And provided advice on various benefits, all for free.
Through our telephone support service we offer:
- Tariff comparison / switching
- Issues with energy suppliers including billing, debt, meter connection and access to emergency top ups for those on Pre-Paid Meters whilst isolated – i.e. ensuring people can keep the lights and the heating on
- Emergency broken heating/hot water/gas appliances
- Priority Services Register sign up for vulnerable people
- Income maximisation and debt advice if in wider financial trouble (including claiming the Warm Home Discount and accessing charitable funds)
- Energy efficiency advice to save energy and use heating controls effectively (especially whilst people are at home all day)
- Water support – social tariffs, billing, debt issues
- Informing and circulating the latest government advice on Coronavirus and reassurance
- Offering advice on other telephone-based or local sources of help for e.g. for domestic violence, mental health services, food delivery etc
