Fuel Poverty Information
We support East Sussex County Council's Warm Homes Check Service to prevent poor health and increase wellbeing by addressing cold and/or damp living conditions.
If you recognise a household living in cold or damp homes with a low income and are either: an older person, a family with children, a disabled person or someone with an ongoing health condition (or if anyone in the household is), then they may qualify for this service.
Further information on keeping warm and well can be found at: www.warmeastsussex.org.uk
The Energy Company Obligation (ECO)
ECO is a Government initiative provided by the big six energy suppliers to help people keep their homes warm. ECO can provide heating and insulation improvements for low-income and vulnerable households - social housing tenants are not eligible and there are eligibility criteria for this means-tested scheme.
Measures covered include:
- loft insulation
- cavity wall insulation
- boiler repair or replacement
The Councils of East Sussex have all signed up to a Statement of Intent on the use of Eco Funding. This can be found here.
