PRACTICAL help to keep homes warm and reduce heating bills is on offer from Hampshire County Council as part of a new campaign.

Hitting the Cold Spots aims to reach older people and vulnerable people of any age - especially those who live in fuel poverty but fall beneath the radar either because they are unaware of the range of options available or unable to reach them.

On offer is free home safety visits, grants for heating repairs, advice on how to switch to cheaper energy providers, access to fuel-filled radiators and advice on debt and benefits.

To find out more call the dedicated freephone advice line on 0800 804 8601.
