Get ready for winter!


And reduce the costs of your fuel bill.

If anyone in your household is aged 65 or over, Age Cymru Sir Gâr can do a free energy assessment of your home. With the energy assessment the charity is offering to install free energy saving items such as light bulbs, draught excluders, radiator panels, nightlights etc, to help maximise the efficiency of your heating and energy use systems.

The assessment takes approximately 60-90 minutes to do, including installation of any equipment. This service is funded by Eon energy providers.  

You do not have to be on any benefit to receive this support.
