Local Energy Action Plan (LEAP) ‘Making It Happen’ is supported through Renfrewshire Council’s Tackling Poverty Programme to improve the comfort and fuel efficiency of fuel poor and vulnerable residents’ homes across urban and rural Renfrewshire. It is designed to make measurable difference and beneficial long-term changes for those in need and to become self-sustaining in the future.
For fuel poor and vulnerable residents across Renfrewshire LEAP ‘Making It Happen’ offers free home energy advice and identification and installation of appropriate practical measures, such as draught proofing, changing light bulbs to LEDs, identifying and remedying complex heat loss and helping householders access specific support when needed (through referral to partner organisations or wider government schemes as appropriate).
All practical actions are accomplished for free by LEAP experienced team for residents who are less able financially and physically to carry out tasks which can help keep them more comfortable and save money in the long term.
We aim to reach a minimum of 80 fuel poor and vulnerable persons across Renfrewshire through ‘Making It Happen’. Due to the tight five-month timescale households will be assessed and supported on a first come first served basis.
Who is eligible? – Fuel poor and vulnerable households in Renfrewshire. This can include but is not limited to those struggling with fuel bills, health conditions, living in cold, damp homes, etc
