Don’t suffer in a cold home
Every year we distribute grants to vulnerable older people through the surviving winter scheme – the money comes from older people who can afford not to use their winter fuel allowance, so the money gets recycled to help people in need.
It is managed by the Somerset Community Foundation – more information can be found here. Our Agents are one of the ways people get to know about the money.Donate to the Surviving Winter Scheme
