Dear Kingston upon Thames resident,

 

Warm Home Better Health - free assessment

 

Making sure you and your home stay warm will help to keep you well over the winter months. Many people don’t realise that living in a cold home, particularly if you have a long term condition, can cause serious health problems.

If you request the service, an advisor from our local not-for-profit organisation Thinking Works will telephone you at a time of your choosing to give you advice and help prepare you for winter. The service includes FREE devices to help cut your water and energy use that will either be dropped off or installed depending on Covid 19 risk factors.

 

During the assessment, your advisor may offer the following:

  • FREE radiator reflector panels*
