New white goods cost-of living scheme for Peterborough residents

19 February 2024

Residents in need of white goods and appliances that are cheaper to run are being made aware of a new unique support scheme.

Energy efficient white goods will be provided to households whose white goods are out of use, or need replacement by more energy efficient alternatives due to hardship caused by high running costs.

The offer is being provided by Peterborough City Council, funded by the Department for Work and Pensions as part of the authority’s on-going work to help support residents who are struggling with rising living costs.

The scheme is being provided at the following Cost of Living Support Hubs across Peterborough, but is only available until the end of March 2024.

· Light Project Peterborough (small appliances only, air fryer and microwaves) - info@lightprojectpeterborough.org.uk

· St Mark's Church Cost of Living Hub - olufemi.olasoko@stmarkspeterborough.org.uk

Councillor John Howard, Deputy Leader of Peterborough City Council, said: “I’m really proud of all the support we have offered communities over the past few years as living costs have risen, causing difficulties for many people.

“We will continue to help residents where we can and this latest scheme is further proof of our commitment. I would encourage anyone who thinks they are eligible for support with this initiative to please get in touch or visit the support hubs as soon as possible.”

Applicants will be asked questions to help determine eligibility and distribution will be on a first come, first served basis.
