The coming Winter months will represent serious problems for those people on very limited incomes who struggle to pay their fuel bills.

Bucks Affordable Warmth Network is working to reduce the number of people in fuel poverty, and so improve health & wellbeing.

A particularly important part of their activities is to run the Affordable Warmth Helpline, which provides impartial, expert advice on all issues surrounding Affordable Warmth. This includes advice on:

  • reducing energy bills
  • increasing energy efficiency of properties
  • grants and financial assistance
  • switching energy supplier, and
  • how to stay warm over winter

The service is free and available to all Buckinghamshire residents who are likely to struggle with rising energy bills, or those vulnerable to the cold.

The Affordable Warmth Helpline can be telephoned on: 0800 107 0044
