About the East Sussex Energy Partnership

Founded in 2007 by a partnership of local councils and the NHS in East Sussex, we aim to help to protect individuals and communities in East Sussex from the effects of living in a cold home. We provide resources and information to help people keep warmer for less.

We have five key objectives:

  1. To train health, housing and social care professionals and voluntary sector workers to help people whose homes may be too cold for their health and wellbeing.
  2. To raise awareness among professionals and the public about how to keep warm at home.
  3. To identify vulnerable people who live in a cold home and refer them to organisations that can help.
  4. To provide vulnerable people with information and advice in order to maximise income.
  5. To provide access to housing insulation and heating, more affordable fuel options and how to avoid the health risks of cold homes.

We’re working with a range of partners to address the impact of cold homes and fuel poverty.

We develop and deliver a range of initiatives including:

  • this website, which provides advice on how to keep warm and keep well, information about energy efficiency and making your home more affordable to heat, and the range of local services and support that can help
  • free training for frontline staff and volunteers to help them spot people at risk and tell them about the help that’s available
  • a free Warm Home Check service available all year round for the most vulnerable people in East Sussex. The service has helped thousands of households across the county to access the help and advice they need to reduce their energy bills and make heating more affordable.
