The Warm and Healthy Homes project aims to provide assistance and support to residents of Blackpool in improving the warmth, safety, and energy efficiency of their homes. The project offers various areas of help, including:
- Household support: Assistance in improving the warmth and safety of homes. This may involve identifying measures to make the home more energy-efficient and discussing ways to achieve these improvements.
- Affordable warmth assistance: Support for homes of all tenures in accessing broader health and wellbeing services. This may include winter warm packs, fuel top-ups, access to debt advice, energy supplier priority service registration, food parcels, and more.
- Homeowner assistance with heating repairs and replacements: Access to funding for vulnerable or low-income homeowners to service and repair their central heating boilers, gas appliances, and heating systems. In some cases, subject to funding, broken boilers can be replaced, or first-time central heating can be installed.
- White goods: In exceptional circumstances, the project may consider offering assistance with white goods such as refrigerators, freezers, and cookers. However, there are certain conditions for this assistance. Only one white goods item per household may be considered, and applicants must demonstrate that they have explored other means of funding the item, such as budgeting loans and local discretionary assistance. Additionally, all applications will undergo a means test assessment, and supporting evidence like bank statements will be required.
If anyone is in need of help or support in any of these areas, they can contact the Warm and Healthy Homes project via email at email@example.com or by telephone at 01253 476646. The project will try its best to assist or signpost individuals to the appropriate resources.
