Two local charities, PECT and Cambridgeshire ACRE, have teamed up to deliver a new project aimed at improving the health and well-being of households in northern Cambridgeshire who are suffering from, or at risk of, fuel poverty. The project, named the Cambridgeshire Home Energy Support Service (CHESS), will help local residents with cutting the costs of their energy bills and reducing the carbon footprint of their household. Advisors can assist people with: switching supplier, energy saving tips and advice, signing up to the Priority Services Register, home improvement grants, solutions to damp and condensation, and fuel debt relief.

CHESS is funded through the Energy Industry Voluntary Redress Scheme, please visit for more details.
