Local Home Care Company help fight fuel poverty

Sheffield based at-home care company Home Instead, joined forces with South Yorkshire Energy Centre (SYEC), and other local organisations to tackle fuel poverty in Sheffield.

The working party came up with a fantastic leaflet to provide important information and advice. Fuel poverty is estimated to affect more than 42,000 homes within Sheffield. The team attended Flu clinics in GP Surgeries throughout Sheffield to hand out the leaflets.

Home Instead who support elderly clients to remain independent in their own home, are delighted to announce that South Yorkshire Energy Centre has been named a regional winner in the National Energy Action’s Carbon Footprint awards. The project is now up against 8 others for the national award.

Home Instead are a domiciliary care company who takes great pride in working with others towards ensuring that all vulnerable adults receive the best possible care and support.

Maria Wardrobe of National Energy Action said the ‘Keep warm, Keep well’ leaflet is a great example of how local networks can work together to reach and support vulnerable adults.

Well Done Everyone.
