There are around 4.5 million householders facing the misery of fuel poverty - the recent increase in this number is due mainly to the rise in energy prices and energy inefficient homes.
Through our relationship with Cadent we work in partnership with leading energy suppliers and other key strategic organisations, Affordable Warmth Solutions are targeting some of the most vulnerable ‘non-gas’ homes and communities across Cadent's gas distribution network areas.
We offer qualifying householders free or discounted gas connections and through our partners new or improved central heating systems; cavity wall and loft insulation; that are helping to reduce householder’s energy consumption and at the same time having a positive effect on the environment.
