Cost of Living Grant Funding

Over the last few months, we were successful in obtaining two grants to assist with energy saving measures and fuel costs for our tenants.  

We have been able to help 147 tenants who requested  energy saving items including air fryers, heated clothes airer, thermal curtains, and energy saving LED lightbulbs.  Some tenants have also received one-off fuel voucher payments to help with energy costs.  

Over the coming months the remainder of the fund will be distributed to all tenants by vouchers for energy costs.

The remainder of our fund will be used to support our tenants who are experiencing fuel poverty or debt.

Any tenant who did not receive an LED light bulb pack and would like one, please email with a heading stating LED light bulb.
