Cheshire West Voluntary Action (CWVA) and Cadent’s Centres for Warmth project is already making a real impact across west Cheshire.

Cheshire Community Action (CCA), Citizens Advice, Dial West Cheshire and St Mark’s Debt Advice have all been provided with funding through the project to deliver invaluable services in the local community.

In just the first part of 2024 from January to March, the project has collectively seen:

  • 1,811 people provided with energy efficiency advice
  • 2,940 people given carbon monoxide awareness
  • 165 carbon monoxide alarms distributed
  • 157 people provided with income maximisation advice
  • 249 people made aware of the Priority Services Register, with 37 signed up
  • 37 slow cookers distributed.

The partnership between Cadent, CWVA and the other organisations involved is all about supporting people with energy and financial awareness by targeting those who need it the most.

Fuel poverty is affecting many people across the UK and having a huge impact on those on low incomes.

CWVA has played a key role in the project by helping Cadent distribute funding to community sector organisations and will be running another small grants programme in late spring or early summer, with more information available soon.

The CWVA website has a section dedicated to funding, highlighting the wide range of opportunities you might be able to apply for.
