Extra money available to keep South Yorkshire homes warmer
Yorkshire Housing’s Home Improvement Agency in Sheffield is delivering the ‘Warm at Home’ project which helps vulnerable people who might be suffering fuel poverty.
This funding is available to home owners, free of charge and will be welcomed by many as we prepare for colder weather. The funding is available to access all year round.
The project has received £13,000 from the Foundations Independent Living Trust, who is working in partnership with the Gas Safe Charity to provide heating measures in Rotherham, Barnsley and Sheffield. The scheme aims to help vulnerable people to access the support available.
Home Improvement Agency manager Layla Gorman said: “Funds like these are critical to the health and wellbeing of vulnerable people. Many people aren’t aware they are living in fuel poverty and suffer in silence in the cold. We urge the residents of South Yorkshire to get in touch to see if we can help put measures in place so that they are warmer when they need to be.”
