We are aware that anyone using these forums at any time may be struggling in life in some way or be in a crisis. These forums do not provide any sort of qualified, professional opinion or advice about problems and crisis situations. With that in mind, the purpose of this post is to be a resource for providing links and contact details to general charities and organisations (not specifically with a Christian foundation) who are specialists providing help and information in a particular area.
Cold, hot or adverse weather for a period of time can affect vulnerable people.
PLEASE keep an eye out for those known to you who may be vulnerable.
Those on limited incomes may be feeling worried about keeping their homes warm enough to survive and meeting the bills that will follow afterwards.
These are some UK based sources of help:
Crisis 'Get help' - if you know someone who needs help, or are someone who needs urgent help
Independent Age 'Help in cold weather'
British Heart Foundation '8 wise ways to keep the heat in'
AgeUK 'Keeping well this winter' Ideas and support for older people to help them stay safe.
Citizens Advice 'Grants and benefits to help you pay your energy bills'
nidirect .gov.uk 'Cold weather health advice and keeping neighbours in mind'
