Background

Heat for Health is a Mid Sussex partnership initiative to help keep you warm and well, funded by a grant awarded to Mid Sussex Older People’s Council by the British Gas Energy Trust.

Prompted by statistics that a national newspaper reported as showing the highest number of winter deaths since the turn of the millennium, the partnership including Mid Sussex District Council, Mid Sussex Wellbeing and the Children and Family Centres, is hoping to raise awareness particularly in households with an older person aged 65 or more or a child under 5 of the importance of keeping not too hot and not too cold in order to stay healthy, and the help available to do this.
