Get a warm welcome in Staffordshire libraries 

If you're visiting some of our libraries, you'll be offered a free hot drink this winter. All of our libraries are warm, free and accessible spaces. There’s always a friendly face at your local library and now with the offer of a free drink, there’s even more reason to visit. Find out more about what libraries are offering on our Support in your community page.

 

Keep your home warm and energy efficient

A warm home is important for health. However, financial concerns about the cost of heating homes may be worrying you.

There is a lot of independent energy advice and financial help available both locally and nationally.

 If you haven’t already got a central heating system in your home, then you might be able to get one installed at no cost from the Staffordshire Warmer Homes initiative.

If you would like to apply or find out more about the scheme you can see the website or phone 0333 202 4481.

 

Check whether you can get help with heating costs

If you are a UK resident living at home and are 65 or older, you should be getting your winter fuel payment. You could get between £100 and £300 to help you pay your heating bills. This is known as a winter fuel payment. You usually do not need to claim Winter Fuel Payment. You should get it automatically if you’re eligible.

You might also be eligible for a cold weather payment if the weather stays below freezing for 7 or more days. Like the winter fuel payment, you should get it automatically if you are eligible.

There are also a lot of organisations who can provide independent energy advice about keeping warm and available grants. 

 

Be Warm. Be Safe.
