Energy

North Herts Citizens Advice can help guide you through the options to make your home more energy efficient and greener. There is financial help for those on low incomes, but from this autumn the Government will make many more people eligible. Older properties or, those without mains gas, will be among the priorities under the Great British Insulation scheme and could attract help with the costs of upgrading insulation or, replacing old boilers with air sourced heat pumps and solar panels. Some of the energy companies and installers have already started to market their solutions, but even with government help householders may find them very expensive. We can provide Energy Information sessions and independent guidance to help you find the best solutions to meet your personal circumstances.

Rural Outreach & Scam Awareness

  • Our Rural Outreach Project provides information and access to our services across the many rural communities of our district (funded by North Herts Council)
  • We are currently delivering Scam Awareness sessions to various community groups throughout the region. If you would like a session delivered to your community group please call 07551 275413 to arrange (funded by Police & Crime Commissioner’s Fund for Hertfordshire (via Hertfordshire Community Foundation)
