We support anyone with a physical disability, mental health need or learning disability to stop their home making their physical or mental health worse…

In June 2016, the Big Lottery gave us almost £500,000 to use for 4 years to help disabled people in Plymouth stay warm and well.

3000 people talked to us about the problems they have. Here are some of the most common:

  • Not enough money to pay fuel bills
  • Debt to energy suppliers and others
  • Cold homes that are not insulated – they cost a lot to heat and lose the heat quickly
  • Damp and black mould on walls and ceilings
  • Feeling that they don’t know enough to change supplier or lower bills

What we can do to help

  • Visit your home to see what you’re having difficulty with
  • Look at ways to save money by switching supplier or using energy better
  • See if you can get more money. The government has a grant called the Warm Home Discount. You might also be able to claim some benefits that you haven’t so far
  • Make changes. We can treat damp, stop draughts or see if a new heating system would help
  • Ask more organisations to help. We can organise all sorts of help for both your home and your wellbeing
