Answered By:

Islington Council's Warm Home Discount referral scheme is an example of the role local authorities can play to maximise the data they hold for collaborative local services. 

My toolkit on using local powers to maximise energy efficiency provides guidance for other local authorities who may wish to share their data for similar purposes.  My toolkit includes an example template for data-sharing that can be adapted:
