Warm & Well is an innovative project operating throughout North Yorkshire that helps vulnerable people access a broad range of support services to improve their health, wellbeing and financial situation.
Scheme In Detail
YES Energy Solutions became a Warm & Well partner in 2017 and is currently helping eligible residents across the area access funding for household energy efficiency improvements.
Funded by North Yorkshire County Council, the Warm & Well programme runs across seven district and borough Councils and is managed by Citizens Advice Mid-North Yorkshire.
Ryedale District Council
Scarborough Borough Council
Hambleton District Council
Richmondshire District Council
Craven District Council
Selby District Council
Harrogate Borough Council
The scheme raises awareness of the impact of cold homes on health and wellbeing, offering practical solutions to reduce fuel poverty and to support people and communities to stay warm and well in winter.
Each Council refers suitable residents into the scheme who are then connected to relevant specialist organisations to help improve their living situation. These include YES Energy Solutions, Age UK, NEA and North Yorkshire County Council.
If a householder can benefit from energy efficiency advice or funding support, they are referred into YES Energy Solutions. We then advise them on the heating and insulation measures suitable for their home and other areas to help them save energy and money.
