The HELP partnership is made up from representatives from all of Lincolnshire's district councils and the county council.  Together they are working together to reduce fuel poverty and the causes of fuel poverty in the county.  They are also tasked with developing and bringing to market sustainable ways for homes across Lincolnshire to heat their homes. An Affordable Warmth Strategy has been agreed and signed by all the partner authorities outlining the scope of activity required until 2016.  Expert advice from the Energy Saving Trust, NHS, NEA and other third sector partners are sought at all stages of the process.

The HELP Scheme is a discounted insulation scheme available to all householders in Lincolnshire. A well insulated house stays cool in the summer as well as warm in the winter.  So, whatever the time of year, it is worth installing cavity wall insulation and topping up your loft insulation to the recommended 10.5 inches or 270mm.  This is perfect preparation to save money on your winter fuel bills, especially in this era of increasing fuel costs.

If you are aged 70 or over, or in receipt of a qualifying benefit you may be eligible for FREE insulation.  All other residents can have cavity wall insulation installed from £49 and loft insulation from £79 – massively discounted from the current market rates.  Private tenants are also eligible with agreement from your landlord. Call the Energy Saving Trust on 0800 512 012 to arrange your free no obligation survey. http://www.energysavingtrust.org.uk/
