Warm & Well Angus offers a home visiting service to older and disabled adults who are unable to leave their homes and are worried by their energy bills, scams or housing problems.
Fully-trained volunteer advisers help people stay in their own homes and improve their overall health by providing general advice with emphasis on energy matters, housing issues, scams and benefit checks (income maximisation)..
To enquire about this service, contact the Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) by phoning 01241 870661 ext 234

I’m delighted to see the completion of these new housing options for tenants. They are truly modern homes, with their innovative heating and energy efficiency features. Their design and construction ensures that the character of the original buildings has been retained for future generations to enjoy.
Cllr Lois Speed, housing spokesperson, said:
This development provides much needed housing for a range of household sizes and types, including new options for households with disabilities. Its central location, close to essential amenities, will be great for our tenants. The design and construction methods used are also sympathetic to the environment as we try to reduce our carbon footprint.
