People who are aged 65 or over, have a long term condition or on a low income (eg in receipt of Universal Credit) can also self-refer themselves to Thinking Works, a not-for-profit organisation who can offer advice, support and home assessments on keeping homes warm and reducing energy costs:

We will also be proactively contacting those patients who will be extremely vulnerable to signpost support.

There is also some excellent training being put on to help people who are living in fuel poverty and are likely to be vulnerable to having cold homes this Winter. See below:
