Winter Warmth Grants Available

Published on 25 October 2019 10:50 AM

We're working in partnership with Cumbria Community Foundation to issue Winter Warmth Grants to older people across West Cumbria.

Each year, hundreds of older people in the county are at risk of becoming ill or even dying due to the cold and cost of heating their home.

We have £150 and £250 grants available to help those who struggle most.

To be eligable you must:

  • Be aged 60 or over
  • Have less than £5,000 savings
  • Recieve Pension Credit, and/or struggle during winter due to the cost of heating your home.

Throughout November we have planned FREE drop-in sessions across West Cumbria where you can apply for the grant. If you would like to attend, please bring along proof of identity and any other supporting documents (e.g. confirmation that you recieve pension credit).
