The project has just announced further funding for the coming year.
More than 150 people living with a cancer diagnosis are set to benefit from new central heating after an innovative link up between fuel poverty champions Energy Action Scotland and ScottishPower.
The Warm at Home project has been running across the central belt for the past five years and ScottishPower has just announced a further £350,000 investment for the coming year.
The programme sees Energy Action Scotland work with MacMillan Cancer to identify people eligible for support.
Energy Action Scotland’s chief executive, Fraser Scott, said: “Having a warm home is a key component to making a successful recovery from a cancer diagnosis.
“This project allows us to provide direct support for people who need it most, giving them one less thing to worry about on their journey back to health.”
Energy Action Scotland is the national organisation working with government and energy companies to end fuel poverty and create warm, dry homes for all.
For Warm at Home, the group work with one delivery partner, BRB Ltd, making the process extremely responsive. Once a referral is received, work can start on improving the way a home is heated within days.
ScottishPower’s senior account development executive, Paul Slater, said: “We’re really pleased to be able to support this important project for the 5th year, helping to improve the energy efficiency of heating systems and ensuring people living with cancer have the best chance of recovery.”
