Marches Energy Agency is offering a new home visiting and intensive casework service as part of the Herefordshire Building Better Opportunities programme.

This will be in addition to the existing Keep Herefordshire Warm service.

Anyone aged 19 or over and not in paid employment can make use of the service.

Once signed up for BBO, participants can access support towards employment from the other BBO partners through a range of training, mentoring and volunteering opportunities.

MEA can help householders:

  • Manage fuel debts.
  • Access funding for insulation or a new heating system.
  • Reduce energy costs through tariff switching.
  • Understand heating controls and general energy use at home.
  • Read energy bills and take meter readings.

Funding will support projects in England that tackle poverty and promote social inclusion. It is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund.
