winter warmth for older people



This partnership project provides free firewood and kindling to vulnerable older people across Dumfries and Galloway between October and March each year.

The project relies on donations of wood from local landowners. The wood is then processed by Dumfries and Galloway Community Payback Unit clients.

Older people can apply directly to the project or be referred by an agency. To be eligible for this free service you need to be 60yrs or older, not in employment and in receipt of qualifying benefits and/or have extenuating circumstances. 

To find out more a winter warmth for older people leaflet is available at the Downloads tab above.
