Croydon Council is running a series of public events across the borough where residents can get free energy advice, and find out more about practical support available to Croydon residents, including free home visits through Croydon Healthy Homes. Qualified energy assessors who can provide free independent energy bill and tariff advice will be available at these events.
Friday 15 February 2019 is National Fuel Poverty Awareness Day, which highlights the pressing issue of fuel poverty and the importance of ensuring that vulnerable people have access to a warm, dry, safe home.
The latest figures from the Department of Business Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) indicate 16,235 Croydon households are living in fuel poverty, which is 10.7% of the households in the borough.
Last year the Chevening Hub opened in the old changing rooms in Upper Norwood Rec. The building is run as a space for the community to use and provides a food and beverage service during the day for the community.
On 2 April 2018 the Chevening Hub will be holding an open day in conjunction with JAM Total Sport where there will be food and free sports activities for children.
