What is the Surviving Winter Grant Programme?
The Surviving Winter Grants Programme has been created through the generosity of local donors who have given their Winter Fuel Payment, or made a donation, to help older people in the West of England who need additional support this winter as a result of the cold weather. It is in response to the high number of pensioner households living in fuel poverty.
What can you apply for?
We wish to fund activities of voluntary and community groups which:
- Address the immediate needs of older people in crisis fuel poverty.
- Provide advice/ information to prevent older people from experiencing problems with crisis fuel poverty.
- Prevent older people from becoming isolated during the winter months.
- and ensure that lifeline activities for older people continue or increase during the winter months.
Who can apply?
Surviving Winter Grants are targeted at organisations with charitable aims. Organisations can apply to support older and vulnerable people who struggle during the Winter with fuel poverty, loneliness and isolation. Priority will be given to projects supporting those aged 60 and over.
