Cambridgeshire Home Energy Support Service – PLUS launches

You may be aware that Cambridgeshire ACRE, in partnership with PECT, ran a project called Cambridgeshire Home Energy Support Service (CHESS) which came to an end in 2022.  Cambridgeshire ACRE is pleased to announce that they have been awarded further funding by the Energy Saving Trust to continue this work through a new two-year project called ‘CHESS Plus’.

Their aim remains the same, to help people on low incomes, who are struggling with their energy costs. CHESS Plus will provide advice and support on reducing energy bills and maintaining a warm home. They are also able to provide financial debt relief of up to £500 to those who need it most. This time, this service is working across the districts of East Cambridgeshire, Fenland, Huntingdonshire and Cambridge City.

They are asking as many frontline workers as possible to sign up to support this project. They will provide you with an one-hour short online information session about energy advice and how to refer to the scheme and will contact you with any relevant news and information about the project.  They have tried to make the referral process as simple as possible as they appreciate you’re already busy helping and supporting families and individuals.
