Keeping Barnsley warm and safe this winter

Barnsley Council is set to launch its 2018 Warm Homes Campaign next Wednesday, 5 December.

The campaign aims to highlight some of the help available locally, to help people keep you warm, safe and well this winter.

Having a cold home has been shown to negatively impact on health and can also cause damp and condensation. Heating a home to between 18 and 21 degrees Celsius can help to reduce these problems.

The help available includes Better Homes Barnsley, the council’s energy efficiency scheme. The scheme offers new or replacement oil and gas boilers and cavity wall and loft insulation to homeowners and private tenants. Grants and finance options are available, subject to eligibility.

The campaign will also highlight the new “Great for Barnsley” energy tariff which is offered through a not-for-profit partner, Great North Energy.

Residents are encouraged to get a quote to see if they could benefit from a better deal on their gas and electricity.

The launch will take place on the ground floor in the new Barnsley Market from 9.30am to 12.30pm.

The launch will be followed by further events in and around the borough during the winter. Everyone is welcome at these events to come along and find out about keeping warm, safe and well at home and switching energy supplier.
