About Us

South West London Energy Advice Partnership (SWLEAP) is a partnership between Habitats & Heritage and CREW Energy. It provides free energy advice across the London Boroughs of Richmond, Wandsworth and Merton to anyone in fuel poverty. We are funded by the Energy Saving Trust’s Energy Industry Redress Scheme. 

With costs rising, we are here to help people who are struggling with their bills, living or accessing services in these three boroughs. We understand that everyone is different and so we offer a range of support including home energy visits and telephone appointments.  

We also offer training to frontline staff who work with those experiencing fuel poverty and can arrange to come to talk to a group to give tips for saving money from their bills.

If you are not sure which would work best for you please just contact Susan.
