Two Years Running: Our Continued Support for Energy Advisory Services
For the second year in a row, we are proudly supporting an energy advisory service led by Selsey Money Support. We are also excited to announce our new partnership with the National Energy Foundation as part of their 'Better Homes, Better Health' initiative'.
This collaborative effort focuses on an energy advisory program facilitated by Selsey Money Support and the National Energy Foundation (NEF). Its primary goal is to assist local households in relieving financial burdens related to energy bills, resolving disputes with energy providers, and financing sustainable energy efficiency projects that can have a significant and lasting impact on people's lives.
NEF's Home Energy Assistance and Services:
From November 6th here's an overview of what NEF can offer households in Selsey and Sidlesham:
Switching and Home Energy Advice: To help you understand bills, consumption changes, and provide energy-saving tips
Access to Trust Funds: Many energy suppliers offer hardship funds with eligibility criteria. NEF help residents apply, either independently or with Project Officers' support.
Warm Home Discount: Ensuring eligible residents receive this valuable discount.
Emergency Fuel Voucher: Providing £49 worth of vouchers for residents with prepayment meters and less than £10 of credit on their meters.
