South London Healthy Homes is a programme run by Charlton Athletic Community Trust, Lewisham Council, Groundwork, Thinking Works and South East London Community Energy (SELCE), with support from the Mayor of London. The free service is accessible across 13 London boroughs, to help vulnerable residents stay warm and healthy. 

If someone you know has concerns about keeping their home warm this winter, or if you’d like support yourself, call the South London Healthy Homes line on 0808 169 1779 or click here to be referred to the South London Stay Warm and Well Network.

Keeping warm over the winter months can help prevent colds, flu or more serious health conditions such as heart attacks, strokes, pneumonia and depression which affect more vulnerable people. Our support package can help vulnerable residents stay warm and healthy during the colder months.

The South London Healthy Homes programme provides a free 'winter home, financial and health support package' to those most in need, including: 

  • Energy efficiency advice
  • Installation of energy saving devices
  • Support for home improvement grant applications
  • Impartial advice that will help you heat your home for less
  • Signposting and connecting you to other sources of help

South London Healthy Homes can offer free help to anyone living in South London who is:

  • Over 65
  • On a low income

The scheme is available to residents living in Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich, Kingston, Lambeth, Lewisham, Merton, Richmond upon Thames, Sutton, Wandsworth or Southwark who are vulnerable to the cold.
