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.
