Camden’s Wish Plus and Warm & Well services

With the colder weather on its way, Camden Council run a couple of schemes to help people stay warm in their homes, and also deal with other health and income related issues.

The Council says:

Our Wish Plus service is an umbrella service aiming to help Camden residents with keeping warm, as well as income and health related issues. I have attached a short leaflet with more explanation.

Our Well & Warm service sits within the Wish Plus service and provides free home energy visits for Camden residents. The service is aimed at low income households and includes tailored advice and provision of free energy saving measures such as draught-proofing and low energy bulbs. I have attached a further leaflet with more information.

Both services can be accessed via our Green Camden Help Line number 0800 801 738 (Mon – Fri, 9am – 5pm), or Camden’s website.
