Project warms to its theme

Have your say

A PROJECT being delivered by Port of Leith Housing Association (PoLHA) and sustainability charity Changeworks will help 600 households in north Edinburgh to be “affordably warm” at home.

The Affordable Warmth Project, funded by ScottishPower until 2015, will help householders address high energy costs, poor levels of energy efficiency and low income – root causes of fuel poverty.

The funds will be used to employ a money advice worker from the Citizens Advice Bureau Edinburgh, seconded to PoLHA two days a week, and an affordable warmth adviser employed by Changeworks for two-and-a-half days a week.
