Healthy Homes Visits

The healthy homes visits are delivered by Frome Town Council’s Healthy Homes team and the fantastic Energy Advice Volunteers who are trained by our partners, the Centre for Sustainable Energy.  They have all completed a City and Guilds Level 3 Energy Advice course.

The volunteers provide general energy advice and can help with:

  • Cold and damp, mould and insulation
  • Help understand energy bills
  • Help understand and set up heating controls
  • Help with the hire and use of the thermal imaging camera
  • Install draughtproofing, radiator panels, thermal curtains, hot water tank jackets etc – these have been funded by FRECo
  • If appropriate they can refer to CSE for grant funded energy improvements, or help with supplier issues and energy related debt.

You can request a visit by email or by calling 01373 480391.

Become an Energy Advice Champion

Could you commit a few hours a week or month and would like to make a difference to people’s lives, reducing their energy bills and their carbon footprint? Frome Town Council are looking for Energy Advice Champions to support the expanding Healthy Homes project.

You’ll be a part of a friendly and supportive team, providing energy advice to groups and individuals with initiatives such as regular drop-in energy sessions, pop-up events and home visits.

Full training will be provided by the Centre of Sustainable Energy and hours of volunteering can be flexible.
