As a South Norfolk based family business, serving many homes with domestic heating oil, it is great to see our council helping local residents with their heating bills and needs.
The council scheme offers a number of different types of support including the loaning of emergency heaters, boiler service grants for over 65s, boiler replacement grants, loans to help buy heating oil, emergency oil deliveries, and advice on how to buy heating oil at the best prices.
Additionally loft and cavity wall insulation grants are avaliable along with Decent Homes Loans and severe weather packs.
South Norfolk Councillor Yvonne Bendle, cabinet member for Wellbeing and Early Intervention said:
“The winter months can put pressure on households and the Council is working to help alleviate those pressures and support our local residents.
“By getting in there early and supporting people we can improve their health and wellbeing, and help them stay in their own homes.”
Well done to South Norfolk Council. We wonder if other local councils will help their residents keep warm and cosy during the darker, colder months.
