Keep Strettons Well and Warm Week 12th – 16th February

Keep Strettons Well and Warm Week 12th – 16th February

Age U.K. Marches Energy Agency and Shropshire Rural Community Council will be joining us in the Community Room, The Health and Wellbeing Centre, Easthope Road, Church Stretton, each day 10.00 – 4.00pm.

In addition to displays and information, staff and volunteers will be on hand to give individual advice on all aspects of affordable warmth:

  • Draught proofing
  • Reflective radiator panels
  • Replacing old lightbulbs with low energy LEDs
  • Programming and explaining heating controls
  • Help with billing problems and fuel debt
  • Sign up to the Priority Services Register for support in a power cut

For some households, if you are on a below average income and/or receiving benefits (to be assessed), there may be the possibility of funding, thanks to the Keep Shropshire Warm scheme:

  • Loft insulation
  • Cavity wall insulation
  • Boiler replacement – excellent rates of funding for off-gas, some funding for mains gas properties
  • Some funding also available for other heating types Inc. Electric storage heaters and full central heating

Age UK are offering free home energy checks for over 60s in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin.  These checks include an average of £30 worth of small measures including low energy LED light bulbs, reflective radiator panels and draught proofing.

Heating & Insulation Grants

New ‘Flexible Eligibility’ grant scheme opening soon (Sep/ Oct 2017) in Shropshire offering:

  • Good funding rates for “off gas” – LPG, oil, electric – heating repairs and replacements, as well as loft insulation and cavity wall insulation.
