Keep the Home Fires Burning is requesting funds to continue their existing project which improves the energy efficiency and general condition of homes of elderly people and expand the client group to include families with disabled children. The funding will provide training for health workers and other local organisations to generate referrals of vulnerable families to Home Fires. Home Fires will then become a Case Manager for the clients visiting them in the home to carry out an energy audit and provide help to apply for energy grants where applicable. In addition any housing repairs required, to improve or maintain the health and safety of the home, will also be considered by the health worker. The final element of this project is the provision of emergency heating when a clients heating breaks down. The Project will employ 2 part time workers.
