Keeping warm, keeping well campaign

A 'KEEPING Warm, Keeping Well' campaign has been launched across Scotland, involving local GPs, to help people keep safe in their homes and to deal their fuel bills.

Leaflets are being sent out to all Scottish surgeries by charity Energy Action Scotland, reports the Dumbarton Reporter & Advertiser, with support from ScottishPower.

The purpose of the campaign is to spread the word that there is assistance available to people living in cold, damp homes and for whom high fuel bills are a concern.

Energy Action Scotland is the national organisation working to end fuel poverty and to achieve warm, dry homes for all

The initiative is being supported by MSP Jackie Baillie, who is EAS's vice-president.

She declared: "Fuel poverty is a huge problem for many people across Scotland. It affects the most vulnerable people in our communities including the elderly, and parents with young children as well as people with long term health conditions."
