Age Concern Torbay
The project will continue to employ 3 full time posts and 1 part time post, with a continued focus on aiming to provide up-to-date information on options, awareness of scams, advice on keeping warm and budgeting and staying out of fuel debt. It aims to carry out quick benefit checks, help with grant applications, with visits to hard to reach people and signposts to groups like Warm Front and Affordable Warmth. It also raises awareness by providing group talks. With a linkage to the Age Concern Torbay Handyperson Scheme, one of the aims of the project is to install and distribute energy saving and safety measures to 250 people.
