Supporting vulnerable during the winter and cold period ‘Belfast Warm and Well’
The Belfast Warm and Well Project is available to vulnerable people who are finding it difficult to keep their home warm. Vulnerable refers to a number of different groups including:
- People aged 65 years or older;
- People living with a disability or a long term physical or mental health condition;
- Pregnant women;
- Households with a young child/children (from new-born to school age); and
- People on a low income.
Signs that a person may be finding it difficult to keep their home warm could be, for example:
- The home is cold – you may have to keep your coat on when inside;
- There is condensation on the windows; or
- There are signs of damp on the walls or ceilings.
Belfast Warm and Well is coordinated by National Energy Action (NEA) is supported by the Belfast Community Planning Partnership. The Project works with a range of local community and voluntary groups from across Belfast, to provide helpful independent and confidential advice and practical support.
If you or someone you know is vulnerable and finding it difficult to keep your home warm, contact NEA on 028 9023 9909 or firstname.lastname@example.org to see if they can help.
