LEAP supports residents to MAKE IT HAPPEN

LEAP has launched ‘Making It Happen’ – a programme of FREE practical assistance for Renfrewshire Residents who are struggling with fuel bills and comfort at home this winter. Supported through Renfrewshire Council’s Tackling Poverty Programme, the service aims to reach a minimum of 80 fuel poor and vulnerable persons, who are struggling with fuel bills, health conditions, or living in cold, damp, or draughty homes, across urban and rural Renfrewshire by 31st March 2017.

A Lochwinnoch resident who has already benefited from the ‘Making it Happen’ service recently commented, “Thank you so much for fixing my house door so quickly, I can’t believe the difference it has made it is so much warmer, and no more howling wind and water getting in. My family and I are delighted”

LEAP’s Energy team will carry out practical actions to help to improve warmth and save money in the long term The types of FREE practical energy efficiency actions LEAP can provide may include fitting draught strips, letterbox/ keyhole seals, chimney balloons, minor repairs (structural draught proofing), pipe lagging, tank jackets, window seals, secondary glazing, loft insulation including coombed ceilings or tricky areas, loft hatches, and introducing the use of low energy/LED light bulbs, power down plugs, energy monitors and radiator panels to reduce the energy used for heating and lighting in the home.

Don’t delay, get in touch. If you think you or someone you know could benefit from this programme, and you are Renfrewshire Residents then please contact LEAP in confidence by email to energy@myleapproject.org, via our website or call 01505 612 034. LEAP will consider and assess everyone who contacts them and if anyone is ineligible for this programme LEAP may be able to provide other help, advice or referrals.
