Service your boiler and get an Energy Efficiency Assessment of your home.
Our project co-ordinator Laura has been out and about encouraging people to create their own draught excluders. If you have some time this weekend, have a go yourself. Or if you have children, print off this activity booklet for them to help them learn more about saving energy.
Working in partnership
Warm and Well in North Yorkshire is a partnership project bringing together organisations from the public, private and charity sector with the aim of reducing the number of cold homes, cold people and cold deaths within North Yorkshire. By working together, the project aims to reach communities and households across the seven districts of North Yorkshire.
Community First Yorkshire will use the British Gas Energy Trust Funding to help people living in cold homes by providing home visits, debt advice sessions, installation of energy efficiency measures, a hardship fund and awareness raising events. It is also contributing towards the running costs of Warm and Well in North Yorkshire’s single point of contact
Warm & Well in North Yorkshire is managed by Citizens Advice Mid-North Yorkshire as part of their three-year contract to deliver Winter Health Coordination across North Yorkshire.
