Call us today on 01962 217 844, text 07731 960 320 or email

Winchester City Council's dedicated Advice Line gives advice and support. Your call will be answered by Andy Smale, the Home Energy Adviser from Winchester Action on Climate Change.

How can we help?
Andy can help with:

• Advice on ways to stay warmer and cut your energy bills – that cost very little or nothing at all

• A home visit to check out the problem and provide a report for your landlord recommending repairs to keep you warmer

• When we have funding, free LED lights and pipe insulation for people on benefits

• Free loan of energy monitors – so you can see how much electricity you’re using and where you can make savings

• Assistance to switch your energy provider or tariff to help give you savings on your fuel bills

• And you can also look things up for yourself on our website at

Some of our services are subject to availability and conditions.

Are you helping someone else and need advice?

If you help vulnerable people and would like to know more about how you can help people to reduce their energy costs and still stay warm, we offer free training, casework support and advice to anyone in Winchester District, from volunteer visitors to the elderly to professional staff at housing associations, advice agencies and community agencies.
