What is the Surviving Winter campaign?

The Foundation is asking Hampshire and Island residents in receipt of the annual Government Winter Fuel Payment to donate their payment if they are able to do so, to help those less fortunate across the region.

Families, individuals and businesses wishing to lend their support to the campaign can also make a donation to help local people facing fuel poverty in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

When it starts to get chilly and the time comes to boost up the heating thermostat, many older residents in our communities need extra support.

How can you help?

For people living within limited financial means, they simply may not be able to afford to top up their electricity meter or they may be unable to afford to use their oven to heat their food. Choosing to keep warm may also mean using finances needed for other essentials such as food or medicine.

Grants will support vulnerable people to stay warm, eat well and remain mobile during winter time, including practical assistance to travel to medical appointments or assistance with grocery shopping.
