Our free Home Energy Check Service is now open for referrals.

The aim of the home energy check is to deliver practical energy saving information and advice to older people. 

This project is running until 13th March 2020, so there is plenty of time for us to undertake an energy check for you.

Our handypersons will fit small devices such as energy saving lightbulbs, night lights and remote socket devices aimed at reducing your energy bills and helping to avoid 'fuel poverty'.

To be eligible for this service at least one member of the household must be over 65 and meet one of the following:

  • Be on a low income (below £16,190)
  • Suffer from heart or respiratory problems, arthritis or mobility issues
  • Have a disability
  • Live in a property that is hard to heat i.e. have solid walls, no loft space, high rise, not connected to (and cannot be connected to) the gas grid

We are able to offer this service to people living in the City of Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland.

If you would like to refer yourself or someone you know for this service (with their consent), you can either call us on 0116 2992266 or email A member of our team will then be in contact to arrange a visit.
