Hotline opens to help heat up homes and cut energy bills

West Midlands residents who are struggling to keep their homes snug this winter are being urged to call free 0808 196 8298 to get advice on how to increase their homes’ warmth while cutting down their fuel bills.

The new hotline is run by the Warmer Homes West Midlands programme which supports people who are finding it difficult to keep up with their fuel payments or may be living in damp, cold homes that could be damaging their health.

The advice programme has been created to help more than 7,000 vulnerable households and will improve the health and wellbeing of people with pre-existing cold and damp related medical conditions through energy saving advice, energy saving measures and debt advice, and in addition will create local jobs.
