FILT Warm Homes aimed to equip and fund the home improvement agency (HIA) sector to provide targeted and focused support to clients facing fuel poverty – home visits, energy usage assessments and interventions to tackle cold homes and their effects on the health and wellbeing of older and vulnerable people.
HIAs reached a range of vulnerable, ‘at-risk’ clients as defined by the Department of Health. Those who had work done by their HIA felt better informed, more in control, more confident, physically more comfortable and also more secure, safe and reassured.Around 250 jobs were to repair or replace faulty or old boilers, reducing risk to these people of carbon monoxide poisoning as well as improving thermal comfort. Some repairs even helped clients feel less socially isolated, as previously they had felt embarrassed about having visitors to their home. Other work included fixing boilers, radiators and hot water, draught proofing and insulation, and much more. Check out this video from Age UK Milton Keynes, who received funding as part of the Warm Homes Service.
In June we aim to publish results of the Sheffield Hallam University evaluation showing the impacts of the programme, and to launch a health engagement framework for the sector. Later in the summer, the final part of the Sheffield Hallam evaluation will cover in-depth outcomes on health, wellbeing and building the business case.We will keep you up to date with all the progress through news alerts and on the Foundations website. In the meantime if you have any questions please contact Paul Woolley Paulw@foundations.uk.com
