Outreach workers from Nest, the Welsh Government’s fuel poverty scheme, will be on hand at Gilfach Goch Community Centre, Porth to provide advice and support to people who are struggling with their fuel bills.
The Nest team will be available on Thursday 24th July and then the last Thursday of each month between 10am and 2pm. To make an appointment, please call Nest on Freephone 0808 808 2244.
Nest is open to all householders in Wales and provides advice on saving energy, money management, fuel tariffs, benefit entitlement and home improvements to help reduce the cost of fuel bills.
In addition to advice, if you own or privately rent your home and receive a means tested benefit, you may also be eligible for free home improvements. These may include a new central heating boiler, loft insulation, or cavity wall and solid wall insulation.
Lee Parry, Head of Nest, said: “Nest offers a wide range of support and advice all year round to help people who are struggling to heat their homes. Over the past three years over 50,000 householders have received free advice and support and over 13,000 householders have received home free improvements and saved an average of £470 a year on their fuel costs.”
Please contact Nest on Freephone 0808 808 2244 to make an appointment for Gilfach Goch or visit www.nestwales.org.uk for advice on reducing fuel bills and to find out if you qualify for a package of energy improvements.
