Warm and Well

Warm and Well is managed by sustainability charity Severn Wye on behalf of the seven local authorities in South Gloucestershire and Gloucestershire.

We have been working in partnership with them for over 20 years, improving energy efficiency and reducing the risk of fuel poverty.

Their resource library has lots of useful tips including information about home insulation and how to heat your home efficiently.

You can ask them for a home visit and details of accredited installers who specialise in heating and insulation.

Contact Warm and Well on 0800 500 3076

Severn Wye offers:

  • a free-to-use online directory of local sustainable energy installers and tradespeople
  • a fixed price survey to inspect homeowner properties and issue an EPC
  • an accelerator programme to help homeowners wanting to improve their home’s energy efficiency

Free home energy report

The Warm and Well accelerator programme includes a free personalised home energy report and an action plan to identify the right solutions for your property. They will then guide you through the process of finding suppliers and getting the work done.
