LEAP (Local Energy Advice Partnership) is a completely free service run in partnership with Peterborough, Rutland, Fenland and South Cambs local authorities and aims to tackle fuel poverty. As many of you are aware, we are approaching the end of the scheme year for LEAP, however we are delighted to let you know that we be continuing to offer some telephone-only energy and income advice services in our LEAP areas under the service name, “Connect for Help”, a programme funded by the Warm Homes Fund.
Please note that this service does not offer home visits or small measures like lightbulbs and draughtproofing. However, it does still offer all the advice services including the benefit entitlement checking and income maximisation. This energy and income advice service is crucial for some of those on low incomes.
As usual we rely on our referral partners to refer eligible households, vulnerable tenants, homeowners on low income into the scheme, here is how you can refer:
