As of 1st December 2018, LincolnshireCommunity Foundation now manages the Responders to Warmth scheme which offers practical interventions for those who need support to keep warm.
The Scheme runs from December to March and the Responders to Warmth helpline (0845 6064566) is open from Tuesday to Thursday inclusive.
The Foundation continues to respond quickly and provide support to those people left vulnerable as a result of inadequate or no form of heating during the cold winter months by providing:
oil filled radiators
electric fan heaters
electric heated over blankets
and hot water bottles
Applications can be made easily via the helpline and applicants only need answer some very simple questions to see if they are eligible to receive support and, as a result, keep warm during winter months.
The Team are also able to signpost to other agencies who may be able to fund the cost of boiler repair or replacements etc.
To apply to Responders to Warmth, or for more information, please call us on 0845 6065466.
