Staffordshire Warmer Homes is a scheme run by Staffordshire County Council, in partnership with district and borough councils. Our goal is to combat fuel poverty across the county and help residents to heat their home. 

Our work
Since 2019, we have installed over 450 new heating solutions into over 400 homes.

Over 91% of these homes have seen their home energy efficiency increase.

Improving houses energy efficiency has helped Staffordshire residents save over £650k in home heating bills.
