    Council crowned champions for work to help vulnerable with energy bills

    A council team has been recognised for its work to help elderly and vulnerable residents with their energy during a time of higher living costs.

    Durham County Council’s Warm and Healthy Homes (WHH) Team was crowned National Energy Champions of the Year at this year’s Energy Awards for its work to prevent increased risk of ill health as a result of rising energy bills.

    Working with the council’s Housing Solutions and Managing Money Better services, County Durham Clinical Commissioning Group, County Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue Service, Age UK, and Pacifica 0800 Repair, the project involves teaming up with GP practices to provide direct assistance to vulnerable residents.
