Each week this winter we're publishing a simple health tip to help older people in Wales keep warm, safe and well.

This week Joanne Bass, our Keep Well this Winter Coordinator offers advice on where to for help with heating and insulation improvements.

Joanne says:

"Nest is the Welsh Government’s fuel poverty scheme.

"It aims to help reduce the number of households in fuel poverty and make Welsh homes warmer and more fuel-efficient places to live.

"Nest provides free, impartial advice on saving energy, money management, benefit entitlement and whether you're eligible for home improvements at no cost under the scheme.

"If you’re worried about the cost of heating your home, you can call 0800 512 012 free from a landline or 0300 456 2655 from a mobile, or visit the Nest website.
