Thousands of residents could be entitled to help reducing their fuel bill thanks to our AWARM Plus scheme.

With temperatures continuing to drop living in a cold home can have a detrimental effect on a person’s physical and mental wellbeing. Wigan Council works closely with Wigan Care and Repair to visit homes across the borough and complete a Healthy Home Check, which assesses what help and support is available.

The AWARM Plus service is open to anyone who is currently living on a low income, has high energy costs and living with a long term health condition. The service offers a number of energy saving measures to help keep people warm and safe, including draught proofing, loft and wall insulation, benefit checks, energy switching and much more.

If you’re struggling to keep warm at home or for more information on AWARM Plus and other schemes available visit www.wigan.gov.uk/warmhome or call 01942 239360
