Keep warm and well in East Sussex

If you work with people at risk of fuel poverty or living in a cold home you have an important role in helping to spot the signs, providing information and referring or signposting people to available services. This could be as simple as carrying a small supply of leaflets and referring people to the Warm Home Check service (having obtained consent to do so).

Printed resources are available to order from Health Promotion Resources East Sussex. The resources are listed under the title ‘fuel poverty’, and they will be delivered free to anyone whose role involves promoting health for people in East Sussex.
