WINTER WARMTH FOR VULNERABLE PEOPLE IN NOTTINGHAM

With a fifth of UK households experiencing a boiler breakdown last winter*, a local warmth scheme is encouraging people in Nottingham to seek help now if their heating is broken.  

npower Health Through Warmth works with organisations in Nottingham to help with the funding and installation of heating and insulation measures for vulnerable people.

Elaine Midwinter, npower Health Through Warmth scheme manager, comments: "Many homeowners don't give a second thought to their boiler until temperatures drop. In wintery conditions, being without heating can have an impact on health and wellbeing, particularly for the vulnerable or elderly.  

"This is why, rather than suffer the cold if heating systems have broken down, we are encouraging anyone who thinks that they, or someone they know, may be eligible for help from the scheme to get in touch to find out more."

Help from npower Health Through Warmth may be available to any vulnerable homeowners who have a long term, cold-related illness, a low income with little or no savings and who are unable to fully fund measures, such as a new boiler or heating system. You do not have to be, or become, an npower customer to benefit from the scheme.

Since the scheme was founded in 2000, more than 81,000 vulnerable residents in England and Wales have been referred to npower Health Through Warmth for aid with heating and insulation. More than £65million has been levered to help fund the work required, which includes £1.8million from charitable organisations.  In addition, over £8million has been contributed from the npower Health Through Warmth Crisis Fund.
