Fuel bill help for Hyndburn's low earners

HYNDBURN residents concerned about paying their fuel bills are being offered a lifeline by the council.

The Home Heat Helpline is a free, impartial and confidential service offering people on low incomes support worth an average of £160.

The help available includes rebates, grants for insulation and new boilers, and advice on saving energy.

Coun Pam Barton said: “During these cold conditions, many local residents may be concerned about staying warm, so please call the Home Heat Helpline and seek advice.

“I would also ask people to look out for neighbours, friends or relatives who may be in difficulty and make sure that they are aware of the Home Heat Helpline.”

To access the service call 0800 336699 or visit, where an energy checker will show who is entitled to the support.
