The South Tees Affordable Warmth Partnership is a group of public, private and voluntary sector organisations who share the following vision: Commitment to improving the health and wellbeing of the people of South Tees by ensuring homes have safe and affordable warmth.

Our role in the partnership is to ensure a high profile for Affordable Warmth, community engagement, awareness raising and frontline staff training.

Other members of the partnership offer a range of services such as:

  • Emergency heating in case of heating breakdown
  • Benefits checks and welfare advice
  • Befriending and social activities
  • Mobility and falls prevention information
  • Healthy eating and lifestyles advice

We have a dedicated affordable warmth team to help achieve the goal of reducing fuel poverty and ensuring homes are safe and warm.

South Tees Affordable Warmth Partnership Action Plan 2022

Covering both Middlesbrough and Redcar & Cleveland, the South Tees Affordable Warmth Action Plan 2020-2022 sets out how we can all combat the scourge of fuel poverty across the South Tees.

The impacts that fuel poverty has on physical and mental well-being cannot be understated. Likewise, the scale at which this area is experiencing it cannot be understated: Currently in Redcar & Cleveland, 12.1% of households are in fuel poverty; in Middlesbrough this rises to 15.4%. In total, this means that around 16,567 homes are in fuel poverty across South Tees.

This action plan should give some healthy insight into the steps being taken, and that will be taken, into combatting this complex problem. You can download the PDF via clicking the link below.

STAWP Action Plan 2020

Smart meters are the new generation of gas and electricity meters, which replace the traditional meters in our homes. These are currently being rolled out to households and the Government intends that every home will have been offered a smart meter by 2024.

Our Affordable Warmth Team provides free help and advice including:

  • One-2-One energy advice
  • Fuel debt repayment advice
  • Damp and condensation advice
  • Understanding your energy bills
  • Identifying any other energy efficiency help you may be entitled to

Peated compost significantly damages our remaining peatlands which are vital habitats, carbon sinks and flood defences. Not only that, but it makes for a poor mulch and quickly dries out, so is easily blown away. Swap it for peat-free compost and do your part for the planet! ... See MoreSee Less
