The project aims to cover all heating and lighting costs for the first four weeks of residency once a woman leaves the refuge, providing help and security for women and their dependents when they are settling into their new accomodation and are coping with the economic pressure of being uprooted. The project will then help cover half the costs of the next four weeks, thus allowing the women and their dependents to concentrate on building their confidence, preparing for moving and resettling into a new community and as part of budget work on a low income. The project also involves the provision of grants towards the purchase of energy efficient goods when they move into their own accomodation.
