Organisation Description

Beat the Cold aims to reduce the incidence of fuel poverty and cold-related illness in Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire. It brings together an unusually diverse partnership of local authorities, voluntary and statutory agencies, fuel companies, health and social care agencies and community groups.

We inform, advise and make referrals for households – through telephone advice, events, talks and displays, and a winter leaflet.

We target disadvantaged households that need to spend more than 10% of their income on fuel, helping them to apply for measures and grants to improve energy efficiency and giving advice on using fuel, paying for fuel and services from other agencies.

We also offer advice on renewable technology and feed-in tariffs.

If you or someone you know could benefit from a chat with a Beat the Cold advisor to see if we can save you money on your fuels bills, or help you improve your comfort in your own home, contact us today.
