It’s not only the lack of freedom we normally take for granted – going to work, going to school, seeing friends, going out – it’s also the extra money worries that being forced to stay at home has brought with it.
Staying indoors – kids home schooling and adults working from home – all adds up to increased energy costs especially through these colder months; the kettle on regularly, the heating turned up during the day, lights on more often, having to make 3 meals a day, devices in constant use.
And this is at a time when through redundancies, furlough and the loss of many jobs and businesses, we can least afford it.
Some families we know are having to choose between heating their home or putting food on the table, which should never be a choice a parent has to make.
That’s why we want everyone to know about the free Warm & Well in North Yorkshire service – such a bonus for any family feeling the pinch!

Donna is one person Warm & Well has supported.
She felt like she was spending a fortune on electricity, but her home was still freezing. She didn’t know where to turn.
She was referred by Warm & Well to the Yorkshire Energy Doctor who talked her through her options to help her get the right energy deal that worked for her.
“She showed me different energy companies, different tariffs and talked me through them. We found a deal together and changed the way I pay from pre-payment to direct debit which was a cheaper option for me.”
The switch was quick, it was all done in a couple of hours and now Donna is saving £500 a year. She is still careful with her usage and monitors it, but now feels in control.
“I can put the heater on for longer. It’s brilliant.”
