Keep warm this winter

Do you find it hard to pay your gas and electricity bills?

Is your home hard to heat?

Would you like to check you are getting all the benefits and financial help you are entitled to?

Is keeping warm in winter made more difficult by poor health, having a disability, mental health issues, having young children under 5, or living 'off gas'?

If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions, contact Dorset Community Action. They can help with advice, benefit claims, switching energy suppliers, home improvements, loans and grants.

Home Energy Conservation

Under the Home Energy Conservation Act 1995 (HECA), councils are required to publish regular progress reports on how they have:

  • improved the energy efficiency of domestic dwellings in their area
  • helped to reduce carbon emissions associated with housing

For more information please read the Dorset councils latest HECA Report.

Our Flexible Eligibility (FE) using the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is detailed in our Great British Insulation Scheme and ECO4 Flexible Eligibility Statement of Intent (October 2023).

This details how Dorset local authorities have set their own eligibility for the funding of domestic energy efficiency measures.
