Home energy advice service to continue in Aberdeen

October 29th, 2021


Scarf is delighted to announce that we are continuing our long-standing partnership with Aberdeen City Council to deliver our free home energy efficiency advice service in the city.

Soaring gas and electricity prices and increasingly colder weather means energy bills are rising and putting significant strain on household budgets. Our local energy advice team is still on hand to help people heat their homes for less.

Lawrence Johnston, acting CEO at Scarf, said: ‘We’re currently in unchartered water with rising gas prices, the energy cap rising and energy suppliers struggling to survive. It’s a very worrying time for householders especially as we approach winter and fuel bills are set to rise as we turn the heating on.

‘If you’re worried about how you’ll manage your bills our home energy advisors can work with you to take practical steps and keep the costs as low as possible.’

‘We’re currently in unchartered water with rising gas prices, the energy cap rising and energy suppliers struggling to survive.’

Aberdeen City Council Leader, Jenny Laing, said: ‘We are pleased to renew our partnership with Scarf, a social enterprise organisation dedicated to helping people struggling with fuel poverty and to promote the efficient use of energy in our communities and businesses.

‘Aberdeen City Council’s commitment to the Local Outcome Improvement Plan (LOIP) includes the key objective that no one will suffer due to poverty by 2026. Poverty has a huge impact on a person’s physical and mental wellbeing. We are aware that the pandemic has pushed more people into poverty which is why key partnerships are essential to enable us to do all that we can to ensure Aberdeen is a city where everyone can prosper.’

We can provide up-to-the-minute advice on energy suppliers and fuel debt. This in-depth, personalised advice can be delivered via a free home visit where appropriate. Advisors can also help householders set their heating controls, timers and programmers.

The team can also offer advice on saving energy and reducing fuel bills along with advice on heating systems and insulation measures for your property across all tenure types. We also signpost to and grants and funding that might be available to make a property more energy efficient.

Our advisors can give advice over the phone or via a free home visit for people who need assistance or additional support.
