Hounslow’s ‘Better Homes, Better Health’ scheme

Feb 27, 2017 | LBH

The ‘Better Homes, Better Health’ scheme is Hounslow Council’s one-stop referral scheme, which has been designed to tackle fuel poverty and winter ill health in a holistic way.
Voluntary and statutory sector service providers can refer clients to the service. Clients are then assessed for a package of support through Groundwork London’s Green Doctor home visit. The visits include help to access larger measures such as heating and insulation grants, fuel debt advice, income maximisation, fire safety checks, health and wellbeing services and help with home repairs. During the home visit the Green Doctors also install small, practical energy-saving measures such as draught proofing, and offer 1-2-1 energy-saving advice.
(Note – You do need the consent of residents to make a referral so we can contact them).
The link to the referral e-form can be found at the bottom of the page in the above link.
