If you're an older person struggling to pay your bills, and balancing the need to stay warm with having the funds to buy enough good quality food to stay healthy, Age Concern may be able to assist you ...
Winter often means worries about staying warm and well and this is particularly important as we get older and perhaps spend more time at home.
Age UK Bucks has a small amount of money from the Community Foundation under the 'Big Heat' scheme to help people who are struggling to stay warm this winter.
- Struggling to keep up with heating costs?
- In receipt of a means tested benefit, such as Pension Credit or Housing Benefit?
- Not in receipt of any other charitable grant or award?
If you have answered yes to all three questions above and would like some help and advice, please ring Age UK Bucks on 01296 431911. They will arrange for a trained volunteer to come out and see you at home to complete the application form.
If successful, they can make the award ( of £125 or £250) directly to you, or to your energy supplier
Age UK Bucks has got capacity to deliver about 130 food parcels in Bucks over the winter months but there has not been much demand for the service so far. The criteria is: 60+, vulnerable or housebound or anxious about going out in the ice/snow.
The parcels would be delivered to them at home by a volunteer so this could serve as an informal welfare check in the severe weather as well.
Please contact Riah Wilkinson 'Winter Warmth' Coordinator on 01296 431 911 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
