KEEP WARM and WELL in WINTER - new leaflet
The winter is a difficult time for Keeping Warm and Well. Temperatures are low and often take a plunge in deepest points. It becomes even harder to heat and power homes. It is important that people know how to access support. Energy Action Scotland has worked with SP Energy Networks to produce information to support local advisors and householders. This includes information on the Priority Services Register which ensures that support can be prioritised to those vulnerable households in the event of a disruption to power supplies, to sources of advice to deal with debt and energy efficiency improvements to homes. There is summary information on sources of funding and tips to keep homes warm and energy bills affordable.
