Warm Homes

29th February 2024

In an effort to reduce hospital admissions due to respiratory problems, patients with respiratory conditions who are at risk of living in fuel poverty, will be targeted for financial help in order to heat their home.

The ICB will provide data about local people who live with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and Asthma to the local District Council, who then identify all the people who are eligible to participate in the Warm Homes project. This list is then passed to Virtual Support Team (VST) who will contact them and offer financial assistance. This project is focussed on people living in Great Yarmouth and in the Waveney area of East Suffolk.
