West Sussex Emergency Heater Scheme 2011-12

Lib Dem David Heath MP

I am pleased to advise that the West Sussex Emergency Heater scheme will continue to run this winter 2011-12. The scheme supplies an oil-filled radiator to vulnerable and low income households inWest Sussexwho have no working heating system and may be in fuel poverty. 

Please contact the West Sussex Fuel Poverty Coordinator for a new referral form, which replaces all previous versions of the form and includes details of eligibility criteria. Where possible it must be be signed by the client due to the nature of the equipment, or counter-signed with the clients permission, and no self-referrals can be accepted.

Please by either post, fax, or scan via e-mail.  

Advice sheet on room heaters which gives the running costs of different heaters (please note this is approximate and does not take into account recent gas / elec price increases) and information on energy saving tips will be given to the client along with the heater as a guide.

Please could you share this information to anyone who may need it and contact:
