As a result of the advice from the government to avoid all unnecessary social contact, the Croydon Healthy Homes team is suspending the Croydon Healthy Homes programme of home visits immediately.
All appointments currently booked will be postponed until it is safe to resume the programme. The team are happy to accept new referrals, but there may be a delay before those referred are contacted.
They hope to be able to offer some energy advice over the phone during this difficult period.
You can download further information and the referral form below to complete or to pass on to others who may qualify for the service.

The Great British Spring Clean is back!
From 20 March to 13 April 2020 communities across the country will be coming together to give their neighbourhoods a good old spring clean, by clearing litter and rubbish from streets, parks and public spaces.
This funding will benefit a range of Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) organisations. In order to provide some stability to VCS organisations, and enable them to plan in the medium to long term, rent subsidy will be awarded to successful applicants for a period of 3 years. The scheme will offer rent subsidy up to 100% of the contractual rent.
LGBT+ History Month 2020 launches in Croydon on Thursday, 6 February, at the Fairfield Halls.
