Northern Exposure – Achieving Warmth in Whiterock and Westrock Report Findings

NEA Northern Ireland in partnership with the Public Health Agency, Whiterock Westrock Residents Association and Councillor Steven Corr launched the findings of the Achieving Warmth in Whiterock and Westrock project on Thursday 26th June 2014 at O’Donnells Clubhouse, Belfast.

Councillor Steven Corr with NEA and the Public Health Agency convened a working group in the area of Whiterock and Westrock in Autumn 2013.  The objective was to deliver an intervention to maximise access to grants services and benefits, using a door to door approach with a particular focus on fuel poverty.  The intervention included:

  • energy efficiency measures and advice
  • access to support around benefits and debt
  • an assessment and use of local services

NEA coordinated the planning and implementation of the intervention this year in partnership with Councillor Corr and the Whiterock Westrock Residents Association.  Results from the intervention and how they can be used were presented at the event.
