Thousands of homes across the north east are enjoying warmer homes thanks to a landmark initiative.

Warm Up North has delieved £4.9m worth of energy saving measures across 3,690 homes since its launch in 2013.

The initiative is being delivered by British Gas in partnership with nine local authorities.

Local residents can benefit from a range of energy efficiency measures, including free A-rated gas boilers, subject to eligibility and survey, as well as cavity wall and loft insulation as part of the Warm Up North programme.

Graeme Stephenson, lead partnership development manager at Warm Up North, said: “As the weather gets increasingly cold, many local residents will be thinking about the costs of heating their homes and I’d urge them to give us a call.”
