Warm Zone Activity
WarmZones seek to identify all households that need help (in particular the vulnerable and fuel poor) in the area and give them all available help in a concentrated, cost-effective way. Much of the work to deal with fuel poverty is about installing measures - thermal insulation, draught-proofing and heating to improve comfort in the home. At the same time, sound advice on energy efficiency and benefits entitlement can help to reduce the amount spent on energy and maximise household income.
