Warmer Homes Stafford for energy advice

WHS logoThe local energy advice service, Warmer Homes Stafford, looks set to continue for at least another two years following a deal between Stafford Borough Council and Shrewsbury-based charity Marches Energy Agency (MEA). The scheme was launched in 2014 to provide help for local householders on various aspects of home energy efficiency and improvements, and features a dedicated helpline.

The new contract will allow this service to continue. Oliver Rothwell of MEA (pictured below), who will be running the scheme, confirmed that the Helpline number will now transfer to MEA, but that callers can expect the same level of help and advice. "I am looking forward to working closely with the community in Stafford Borough to help them with all matters concerning home energy," he said. "Residents throughout the Borough can access free and impartial support to help lower their bills and improve the comfort within their homes."Oliver Rothwell

The WHS team can provide the following:

  • Advice via a dedicated helpline
  • Home visits for eligible residents
  • Signposting to additional services
  • Access to grants and financial support for energy efficiency improvements

There is also the opportunity for WHS face-to-face surgeries at day centres, coffee mornings, and other community events.

Key aims of the scheme remain the same: to tackle fuel poverty and help improve living conditions for people struggling to pay their energy bills. Residents can phone the helpline to access the latest local information about grants, cheaper tariffs, eligibility for home improvements, such as replacement heating boilers, and so on.
