Over 250,000 people have already been helped out of fuel poverty. The scheme can also help reduce energy bills with an estimated £10 million in life time savings.
The scheme runs until January 2016 so check if you're eligible by phoning Go Warm on (01642) 605130.
Training together, working together
Twelve apprentices who trained in welding are sticking together when it comes to finding work.
After completing a successful programme at Hartlepool Training and Employment Services, they were handpicked by local company, CPD BODIES of Stockton to commence full-time employment.
Brian Goodlad from Hartleppool Training and Employment Services said "It's a tremendous boost for young people when they see there are real jobs out there.Our apprenticeships are not fruitless programmes, there are endless results and this is the perfect example."
