KIRKLEES Neighbourhood Housing has joined up with British Gas in a bid to end household poverty.
About 26,000 council properties in Kirklees are being targeted by a project called Here to Help, which is set to be the biggest-ever independent crackdown on household poverty.
British Gas started the £150m nationwide scheme and is working closely with Help the Aged, Scope, Save the Children, the Family Welfare Association, RNIB, Gingerbread, the National Debtline and social housing providers.
The programme will target 500,000 of Britain's poorest homes and provide benefits of up to £2,000 per home.
Households in Kirklees may benefit from savings on energy bills, extra income, essential appliances and free advice and services.
KNH's partners will install energy-efficiency measures.
A KNH spokesman said: "We believe that this joint initiative, coupled will provide significant benefits for our tenants."
