Care and Repair Cymru launch 'Older not Colder' service

'Older not Colder' is a new service from Care and Repair Cymru which aims to help people aged over 60, who own their home or privately rent, to keep their homes warm and energy efficient.

Home Energy Officers will visit homes to provide a comprehensive and tailored package of energy efficiency measures and home improvements. They will also offer advice and signposting information. Older not Colder will be integrated with Care and Repair's other services and initiatives, which include Managing Better, which helps people with sensory loss, dementia or who have had a stroke.
