Update 8 Feb 2017
We have received today ( 8 Feb) a further sum of money to distribute and are therefore accepting applications to the fund.
Stay Well (previously Warm Homes)
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 must be referred by an organisation (voluntary sector or local authority) that has assessed the individual’s circumstances and can verify that they are in need of immediate assistance.
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.
