Andrew Stunell MP is urging all Stockport residents to ring the Home Heat Helpline to see if they qualify for home heating help to keep warm this winter.
Home Heat Helpline (0800 33 66 99)
Homes that may qualify include all those living in certain deprived areas as well as low income pensioners, disadvantaged families with children or those with a disability that live in a rural area.
Commenting, Sir Andrew Stunell MP said –
“Many people may not know where to turn for free advice on keeping their homes warm. One of the best ways for people in Stockport to stay warm this winter is to act now, and call the Home Heat Helpline on 0800 33 66 99 to see if they’re eligible for help.”
Lawrence Slade, Chief Operating Officer, Home Heat Helpline –
“The research speaks for itself – an astounding 3.2 million households in Britain are entitled to home heating help. As we’re now in winter, we are urging people to make a free, confidential call to the Home Heat Helpline on 0800 33 66 99.”
Last year, 98 per cent of eligible households may have missed out on free advice and support because they did not call the independent Helpline.
The British Energy Aid Report, carried out by the New Policy Institute on behalf of Home Heat Helpline, showed that one in eight British homes across Great Britain is entitled to relief, a total of 3.2 million households.
