Message for Buxton residents from Derbyshire Trading Standards

Alert message sent 21/10/2021 10:49:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary


Derbyshire Trading Standards Service wishes to make householders aware of a letter being posted through letterboxes which may be misleading.

The letter states it is a non-profit organisation offering to put householders in touch with a Free Government Grant to fund improvements.
The letter doesn’t state which particular grant but implies it is to do with Energy Funding.

However, the latest Green Homes Grant scheme for funding energy-efficient home improvements is now closed and no longer accepting new applications.

More information on the current scheme, which suggests loans are available, is below:
https://www.gov.uk/green-deal-energy-saving-measures

Derbyshire Trading Standards Service advises anyone receiving such a letter to read the information at the link above before making a decision.

If you wish to report an incident to Trading Standards, please contact Citizens Advice on 0800 144 8848.

To report an incident to the Police, which is not an emergency, please ring 101.
