This project has now been running successfully for several years.
Forum 21 has been involved in identifying elderly people who can't afford to keep warm in winter and making them grants from the Somerset Community Foundation (SCF).

SCF funds this work by inviting donations from pensioners who do not need their winter fuel payment. To find out more visit:
