ECO or the (now closed) Green Deal – were you unable to get help through these?

Hi everyone,

Age UK are looking to speak to older people about problems with energy efficiency schemes, and have asked us to share this notice with you:

Age UK’s campaign for warm homes is calling on the Government to reform its energy efficiency schemes, ECO and whatever replaces the Green Deal, so that all older people in England can live in a warm home. These schemes have failed older people so far and to illustrate the problem, Age UK is very keen to speak to older people (aged 60+) who:

• are living in any type of housing in England
• have tried but were unable to get help with installing energy efficiency measures via ECO/the Green Deal
• would be happy to share their stories with us.

If you think you fit the bill, please call the Age UK Campaigns team on 020 3033 1712 or email
