Liverpool residents can receive advice on keeping warm this winter as a free event takes place in the city centre.
Around 40 exhibitors will be on hand at the Healthy Homes Winter Survival Event this week, covering issues from fuel poverty and debt to energy efficiency and social inclusion.
Held from 10am until 1pm at the Holiday Inn (St Johns Shopping Centre) on Wednesday 21 November, the event will also offer free health checks and exercise demonstrations.
Organised by Liverpool City Council’s Healthy Homes team, it will aim to provide people with the information they need to stay warm during the colder months and let them know what support is available when it comes to paying utility bills.
Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Councillor Christine Banks, will open the event and says: “The figures around fuel poverty are shocking and goes to show how big the issue is in this city. We are committed to doing as much as we can to ensure everybody has the best help in dealing with their energy bills.
“It is also very important that elderly people keep active throughout the winter and there will be demonstrations at the event showing how you don’t even need to leave your chair to exercise!”
