In supporting the community through the current COVID-19 crisis, Cornwall Council is working with Cornish fuel poverty charity Community Energy Plus and we are now able to provide the following practical help to vulnerable clients:

  • Pre-pay energy meter vouchers
  • Payments to energy suppliers
  • Deliveries of heating oil, bottled or bulk LPG and firewood
  • Heating repairs
  • Heated blankets
  • Emergency plug-in radiators

 

This support is funded through the Government’s Covid Winter Grant from Department of Work and Pensions.

 

Community Energy Plus are delivering the energy element of the scheme, targeting help to householders living in any property tenure on low incomes (less than £30k after housing and energy costs) who are in economic hardship due to COVID-19 and living in cold homes.

 

Applicants will also benefit from advice to help reduce their energy bills, including tariff switching, claiming the £140 discount from their energy supplier, access to grants for heating and insulation upgrades and referral/signposting to other partners for wider assistance and advice.  Applicants might be able to access additional support through Inclusion Cornwall and Cornwall Council for other goods.

 

Assistance will be allocated on a first come first served basis to eligible householders by 31st March 2021.

Applications can be made using the attached form which should be submitted to Community Energy Plus with householder ID. Paper application forms are available on request.

Should you have any questions or need further information, then please do not hesitate to contact us on Freephone 0800 954 1956 or advice@cep.org.uk
