The project aims to combat the fact that people eligible for measures to improve the warmth in their homes are not accessing them by focussing on those with illnesses linked to inadequately heated homes and investigating why they do/don’t engage with available initiatives. The project will engage health/social care professionals, doctor’s surgeries and group practices as well as Sure Start, children’s centres and local schools for referrals. It will enable direct contact to establish the adequacy of warm home provision, establish why this is the case – what the barriers to take up are as well as enable corrective action to be taken for those not accessing the benefits, schemes available.
