Redditch Borough Council has been named ‘council of the year’ and has been highly commended for its work to help people improve their homes.
The local authority was a runner-up in the ‘vulnerable customer support campaigner’ category at the West Midlands Regional Energy Efficiency & Healthy Homes Awards in Birmingham last week.
Our partner Kath Manning who works as the climate change and energy support officer at Redditch Borough Council, said: “We’re delighted to be recognised for helping homeowners reduce their energy bills, tackle fuel poverty and reduce carbon emissions.
“The Redditch Energy Efficiency Fund is designed to help people to put better, cheaper heating systems in their homes and can also help with loft and cavity insulation.
“Homeowners with a household income under the Worcestershire average of £37,000 may be eligible for £500 towards the cost of replacing an old boiler, and those on low incomes may be eligible for much more.”
