LEAP Home Visits
ECOE has partnered with LEAP, (Local Energy Advice Partnership), a free home visit service for vulnerable residents. Important advice, support and energy saving measures are provided to eligible households.
The criteria for eligibility are deliberately broad to cater for the wide range of issues that contribute to vulnerability and fuel poverty. To be eligible for home visits, only one criteria needs to be met including having a low income; receiving tax credits, housing benefits, income and disability related benefits; have a long term illness (physical or mental) or disability; recent bereavement.
To learn more about LEAP, to find out if you are eligible for a free home visit, or to find your nearest drop in energy clinic, contact the ECOE Energy Advice Team:
