Croydon Healthy Homes is Croydon Council’s free energy advice service aimed at Croydon residents on low incomes, and those more vulnerable to the effects of living in a cold home (especially families with young children, older residents, and residents with pre-existing medical conditions).
Our team of qualified energy assessors can offer you the following:
- advice about gas and electricity tariffs and payment methods;
- checking you receive all the support you are entitled to from your energy supplier. This could include Warm Homes Discount (a £140 discount on your electricity bill), and support through the Priority Services Register
- using OFGEM accredited price comparison sites, assisting you to find the best fuel tariffs for you, and if want to change to the new tariff, supporting you switch
- advice about any debt you owe to your energy supplier
- advice about discounts and support from your water company (such a 50% discount on your water bill)
- advice about Smart Meters
If you own your home or if you rent it from a private sector landlord we can also offer:
- an assessment to see if your household and home meets the eligibility criteria for grant funding for larger energy efficiency measures [for example insulation and new heating systems]. We can help you to apply for regional and national grants. Information about current schemes available and eligibility requirements are on our domestic energy advice page.
- advice about using the heating controls in your home, and ensuring they are set appropriately for the needs of your household
- advice about damp and mould issues (if you rent your property please seek support from your landlord before contacting us)
- If you rent your home from Croydon Council or a Housing Association, please speak to their housing team for advice about energy improvements, your heating controls, and any damp and mould issues.
The advice is initially through a telephone consultation. Where appropriate and at our discretion, we can offer follow-up home visits and other face-to-face support.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to apply for support.
