YOUR HOUSING

Is your home ready for winter?

The Warm Home Fund (WHF) project’s primary purpose is to promote ‘Energy Efficiency & Health Related Solutions’ to those vulnerable residents living across Lancashire.

The project will aim to target residents who are already engaged with health professionals or third sector organisations.  These residents may need additional support and help with installing affordable warmth measures.

  • Referrals can be made from a variety of sources, which include:
  • Self/ Carers / Family
  • Housing Professionals
  • Local Authority Staff e.g. Social Workers, Community Workers
  • NHS Health Professionals e.g. District Nurses, Hospital Discharge Teams, GP Surgeries, Health Centres
  • 3rd Party Organisations e.g. Age UK, Lancashire Constabulary, Lancashire Fire & Rescue Service

Care & Repair staff will complete relevant eligibility paperwork with potential customers and explain the process to them.  The caseworker will then undertake a home visit, which may include a survey, provide benefit and energy awareness and complete a home energy audit.

If you feel you could benefit from this scheme please call Care & Repair on 01253 47900 (select option 4, then option 2) or email care&repair@bch.co.uk
