Staffordshire Warmer Homes is an initiative funded by Staffordshire County Council to deliver funded first time central heating systems to eligible homes across Staffordshire.
Households in Cannock Chase could be helped-out of fuel poverty, thanks to this brand-new scheme.
From August households that currently aren’t connected to gas, and meet certain eligibility criteria, could get a brand new fully funded central heating system set up in their home thanks to the Staffordshire Warmer Homes initiative.
The initiative is being rolled out in Cannock throughout August, September and October, after successful launches in Tamworth and Lichfield saw more than 200 people apply.
Councillor John Preece, Environment Portfolio Leader said “Community wellbeing is a priority for Cannock Chase Council, fuel poverty can have an impact on existing health problems and the elderly and vulnerable.
“To deliver this initiative we are working with Staffordshire County Council and E.ON. I would urge residents in Cannock Chase who are eligible for this funding to apply. You may not think it’s possible if you don’t have a gas supply but it is now!”
Eligible households are being written to directly, but others who think they might be eligible are being urged to go to www.staffordshire.gov.uk/warmerhomes, call E.ON on 0333 202 4481 to find about more and apply.
