Stewart Jackson MP for Peterborough has welcomed £114,296 of funding for Peterborough to help keep the poorest people in the local area warm this winter.
This investment comes from the Government’s Warm Homes Healthy People fund which invited Local authorities to bid for money from the Department of Health to reduce deaths over the winter months
This money will help fund:
- Energy efficiency projects to the most vulnerable people.
- Providing residents with better advice.
- Ensuring better public awareness of cold weather.
- Providing staff and volunteers with fuel poverty/cold weather awareness training.
Commenting Stewart Jackson MP for Peterborough said:
‘People in Peterborough will be pleased to know the Government is putting £114,296 behind efforts to help keep the most vulnerable members of our community warm this winter. Once again the Prime Minister’s commitment to supporting hard pressed people is being shown.
‘Along with discounts to energy bills, boosting cold weather payments, protecting winter fuel payments and getting customers the lowest tariffs, this action shows how serious Conservatives in Government are about helping people with the cost of coping with the cold.’
