New project aims to create Healthy Homes in Peterborough and Fenland

Fuel bills rising? Boiler on the blink? The independent charity Peterborough Environment City Trust is here to help with its new Healthy Homes project, which aims to assist residents in Peterborough and Fenland to enjoy affordable warmth.

With more than 22 years’ experience working within the city and surrounding areas, Peterborough Environment City Trust delivers ground-breaking and innovative projects of local, regional and national significance, enabling change for a sustainable future.

This community-based project, funded by the British Gas Energy Trust, aims to help local residents save money and improve the energy efficiency of their homes, whilst also lowering the carbon footprint of local communities and conserving limited natural resources.

“Through a free home visit, I can advise residents on energy tariffs, available grant funding and positive behavioural measures,” explains Project Officer Sam Bosson. “Plus, in addition to this, they will receive a free home energy pack, information on the national £140 Warm Home Discount, and even home improvements for those residents who meet the criteria.”

This service is available to residents throughout Peterborough and Fenland, whether or not you own your own home. To book your free home visit call 01733 866440 or email sam.bosson@pect.org.uk. For more information about the project, please visit www.pect.org.uk/HealthyHomes.
