Warm Wales team tackles fuel poverty in Aberavon

Residents across Aberavon will soon be visited by the Warm Wales team as part of a project brought to you with the help of Labour in Neath Port Talbot.

Advisers will be knocking on every door in the ward and offering free energy efficiency advice. They will be asking residents to complete a detailed questionnaire that will assess each household’s energy needs and benefits entitlement. The form is quite simple and help will be on hand to fill it out.

The advisers will then be able to identify those people who qualify for help with energy efficiency measures as well as finding out whether they are eligible to claim any additional benefits.

Residents who complete the questionnaire will automatically qualify for free energy saving lightbulbs.

This is an innovative scheme which will tackle deprivation and fuel poverty in the most disadvantaged homes.
Warm Wales – which will bring warm homes to Neath Port Talbot is a partnership between Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council, National Grid Transco, npower, Warm Zones Ltd, eaga Partnership and the Labour Welsh Assembly Government.
