Blackburn with Darwen Council is supporting Fuel Poverty Awareness Day.
The nationwide event which is today (Friday February 12) is run by National Energy Action (NEA) and sponsored by EDF Energy. The campaign aims to draw attention to the health problems caused by living in a cold, damp home and the help available to improve living conditions.
Once of the coldest winters in decades has seen more people struggle to cope with the rising costs of keeping their homes warm. The message the campaign is trying to get across is to seek help now if you or someone you know is struggling with energy bills as living in a poorly heated home puts you at risk of serious health problems.
For more information about home energy grants and discount schemes available to help make your home warmer and more energy efficient, contact the Council’s energy efficiency advice service on (01254) 588822.
