Age UK Wiltshire is keen to inform people across the county about the local Wiltshire Surviving Winter Grant (SWG), as one of the partner organisations supporting older people to apply for the grant. The scheme is aimed at older people at risk of fuel poverty and aims to support them by providing a one-off £200 grant alongside holistic advice to help ensure they are maximising their income and receiving support for any other issues they may have.

It has been running on an annual basis for a number of years and is organised and fundraised through Wiltshire Community Foundation. It is likely to remain open until March 2022 (but may close sooner if all grants are distributed).

It should be noted that, for working-age people, Wiltshire Warm & Safe ( are the partner organisation supporting these clients to apply for the grant (the criteria for working age clients is slightly different).

Further details of the scheme can be found on the poster.
