The Stay Warm, Stay Well Scheme – help for vulnerable households who are struggling with their energy bills

Groundwork has partnered with the Cadent Foundation to support those living in fuel poverty across England.

The Stay Warm, Stay Well scheme will provide help for vulnerable households who are struggling with their energy bills, with Groundwork Green Doctors – energy efficiency advisors – visiting homes and offering practical guidance on energy saving, including behaviour change tips, as well as referrals to other local support services, including debt advice and food banks.

Funded by the Cadent Foundation and led in partnership by Groundwork, the programme will invest £6m and support 14,500 households in communities across England.

The programme is a new wave of Groundwork’s partnership with the Cadent Foundation, who have so far invested £3m with over 10,000 Green Doctor consultations carried out between 2020-23 across England.

Further information, including how you can refer yourself, or someone you know, for a Green Doctor consultation, and access the Get Energy Help Resource Hub, which offers helpful tips and advice on different ways people can save energy, stay warm and reduce energy bills, please visit the Groundwork website.
