Stay Well Heating Grants - 29/11/2019
The Stay Well heating grants are now open for applications on the Cambridgeshire Community Foundation website.
Grants up to £300 for vulnerable individuals/families living in Cambridgeshire (not including Peterborough) facing fuel poverty to contribute towards future heating costs. For those that are homeless, other costs of keeping warm (such as sleeping bags) will be considered.
Individuals/families must be referred by an organisation (voluntary sector or local authority) that has assessed the circumstances and can verify that the individual/family are in extreme crisis and in need of immediate assistance.
Repeat /multiple requests for one family or individual are not anticipated as it is expected that the referring agent is doing all they can to help the person move on from the crisis point.
Where there is historic debt owed to their energy supplier, the organisation helping the individual will need to seek support from a debt advice agency or other resource. The Stay Well Grant will not be paid to offset historic debt.
Grants will be paid direct to the energy supplier, or to the referring agent to buy a prepayment token or other items.
