How we work in residents’ homes

At South Seeds we have conducted hundreds of home energy audits to support residents to reduce their energy bills and stay warm in their homes. We regard it as a privilege to be let in to residents’ homes and we take that responsibility seriously. This is how our staff arrange and carry out home visits.

Grass cutting

We can cut the grass of a standard size tenement backcourt for £24. If you are looking for something cheaper, why not rent out manual lawn mower for £10 per day.

Recruiting for an energy officer

We are looking for someone who understands how energy works in the home and has a good manner with people, to join our team as a part time energy officer.
