Shining Examples: Curtain Bank at Sustainability Trust

The Sustainability Trust helps families who urgently need warmer, drier, healthier homes. Households often suffer from asthma, respiratory illness or skin conditions caused or aggravated by cold, damp and mouldy housing. Because damp, draughty houses are harder to heat, living in these houses can result in high heating bills as well. Our certified team of Home Performance Advisors will make a full assessment of the building, its maintenance, and lifestyle factors. We assist tenants and landlords with improving the house, and advise on energy efficient behaviours for the householders.
