Helping you stay warm this winter

Getting your home more energy efficient
Are you struggling to keep your home warm? You might be eligible for support to get your home more energy efficient.
Turning the heating on is a simple step to stay warm, but some of us find it hard to keep our home warm and are faced with high energy bills. If you're struggling and worried about keeping warm this winter, then support is available.
We are working in partnership with Action Surrey (and HEAT Surrey for residents living in Runnymede) to help households reduce their energy bills through a range of home energy saving upgrades, grants and free energy efficiency advice.
If you think you're living in a poorly heated home, receive benefits, have a low income or you have certain health conditions made worse by the cold, then you could be eligible for some grant funding to help your home be more energy efficient.
Low income households may also be eligible for a Green Jump Surrey grant of up to £10k per home for energy efficiency measures and green heating measures which will push down energy bills. Green Jump Surrey funding, from Government and Surrey County Council, is available until March 2021.
How can I reduce my energy bills?
There are several ways you can help tackle high bills and still keep warm, such as cavity wall and loft insulation, a brand-new boiler replacement or a complete central heating system if you are using portable or electric heaters.
What support is available?
Depending on your circumstances, you or someone you know could be eligible for some grant funding to help your home be more energy efficient. All that can be arranged through a network of trusted local installers.
To speak to an advisor or to find out more, visit the Action Surrey website or call 0800 783 2503. If you live in Runnymede you can visit the HEAT Surrey website or call 01784 653635 for support in your local area.
