Help on hand to ease fuel poverty

THOUSANDS of Doncaster residents living in fuel poverty are being offered a lifeline with a scheme to provide free cavity wall and loft insulation.

Enact Energy is offering free insulation to homes across the region, subject to a suitability assessment, after it was revealed nearly 20,000 pensioners in Doncaster cannot afford to heat their home.

“Insulating a home is one of the most effective ways to cut heating bills and reduce heat loss and save money. Cavity wall and loft insulation combined can reduce heating bills by up to £310 every year,” said John Moores of Enact Energy.
