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 them to available services. This could be as simple as carrying a small supply of leaflets and referring people to the East Sussex Winter Home Check service (having obtained consent to do so).
