My name is James Anderson from Depher cic UK; with my teams, I have been supporting the elderly, vulnerable and disabled members of the UK for six years.
We have delivered a life-saving service to over 1 million people, with plumbing, heating, gas, electricity and food, amongst many other benefits.
As we all know, it will be tough this year for many people and families, especially the elderly and vulnerable.
With the cost of energy and essential bills increasing every day, we do all we can to support many who come to us for help.
There is now a scheme that many councils and organizations are considering called
" Heat Banks "
However nice this may seem to some, in our opinion, this will cause a lot more damage than it will create a solution.
It will put many vulnerable people into a situation where they could be open to catching the flu, covid or other illnesses, also being taken from their homes and independence.
Many will travel from a cold home to a warm place, but they will be traveling back to a cold place and spending maybe 12 hours or more in their cold homes before returning to a warm place.
This is just a sticking plaster that will cover the problem, not solve the problem.
We are now raising funds to support the Elderly, vulnerable and disabled to keep them in their homes by HEATING THEIR HOMES and not removing them from a problem that will be there when they return.
Our support for Low-income families will continue; we will be supplying Food, Gas and Electricity to families that need our help this winter.
THIS YEAR WE ARE EXPECTING OVER 45,000 DUE TO COLD HOMES; IT COULD BE OVER 75,000 WITH THE EFFECT OF THE COST OF LIVING CRISIS.
Please consider donating; we will ensure that the people who need their independence and surroundings keep them.
