Cold Homes Toolkit

We’ve been working with Cornwall Council to make toolkits to help Local Authorities and Health Trusts to tackle fuel poverty. Benefits include better standards of living, improved and more energy efficient houses, fewer avoidable winter deaths and reduces costs for the health, wellbeing and care services.

Based on good practice from across England, the toolkits offer useful insight on the most effective ways of working, along with helpful case studies, and useful resources.

If you’re downloading either of the toolkits, please can you send us an email phdesk@cornwall.gov.uk. We’ll be evaluating the kits later this year and we’d like to get in touch to see if you found them useful.

All we need is your name, an email address and phone number.
