Do you or someone you know struggle to live without central heating?

Suffolk’s Warm Homes Healthy People service (supported by all the District, Borough and County Councils in Suffolk) has secured funding from central government to help 270 households across Suffolk have fully-funded central heating. Terms and conditions apply.

To qualify, households must meet one or more of the following financial criteria: Have a household income of less than £17,000; or be in receipt of Pension Credit; or be in receipt of any other means tested benefit; or spend more than 10% of net household income on fuel; or be in substantial fuel debt (over £1,000). In all circumstances the property must be owned by you or be privately rented (i.e. not a council house or housing association property) and must only have room heaters, open fires or storage heaters. Personal saving must also not be in excess of £20,000.

In most circumstances the works will be carried out at no charge to you but if you rent privately your landlord may be expected to fund some of the costs. This will be determined as part of the assessment process.

Due to the limited funding more vulnerable residents will be given priority.

To find out more, contact Sue Hall at the Warm Homes Healthy People service by email at whhp@eastsuffolk.gov.uk or call (local rate) 03456 037 686 and quote ‘DECC Central Heating Fund 01’.
