Events have been held across Hampshire as part of a new initiative to help people struggling to maintain a safe and warm home.

Gas distribution network SGN launched its Safe & Warm Mobile Community Hub scheme with visits to libraries.

The company’s Safe & Warm advisers took part in Hampshire Library Service’s Green and Thrifty Fortnight.

They visited Basingstoke, Eastleigh, Gosport and Havant, providing energy efficiency and safety advice.

Information was also shared about carbon monoxide safety.

The free climate-friendly events were designed to help people save money in a variety of ways.

They range from learning how to make clothes last longer and tips on growing your own food to batch cooking lessons and how to save money on energy bills.

It was the first time SGN’s newly appointed Safe & Warm advisers had been out talking to people as well as sharing information on signing up to the Priority Service Register (PSR).

The company says it’s part of its ongoing commitment to support people living in vulnerable circumstances who might be struggling as part of the cost of living crisis.

It’s using data to target geographical areas with high levels of fuel poverty and deprivation.

Kerry Potter, SGN Group Social Impact and Vulnerability Manager, said: “We’re really excited to partner with the Hampshire Library Service for the launch of our regional Safe & Warm Mobile Community Hubs.

“Our Safe & Warm advisers are experts in what they do and have a lot of knowledge to share which will make a huge difference to the customers who need it most.”
