If you are finding it difficult to keep your home warm because of high energy bills and not enough money coming in don’t suffer in silence. There are a number of organisations and sources of support available to help reduce the cost of your energy expenditure and improve the comfort of your home. For further information on current schemes that are available check out the energy efficiency pages on www.midsussex.gov.uk
If you do not qualify for any existing fuel poverty support schemes you may be able to get some support through a local partnership project called Heat for Health. The project is a partnership between Mid Sussex Older People’s Council, Mid Sussex District Council and West Sussex Children and Family Centres. The project is aimed at households facing fuel poverty and containing someone either over 65 or under 5. Measures such as boiler replacements, insulation or secondary glazing may be available to eligible households.
